The rehabilitation of Elm Street in Georgetown, Massachusetts is complete. Designed by Bayside Engineering, the project involved .8 miles of Elm Street from its intersection with East Main Street and extending to its intersection with Central Street.
The majority of utility and reclaiming work was completed during the summer months therefore causing minimal disruptions to school operations. Elm Street neighbors were wonderful to work with and expressed positive feedback about this well managed project.
During the construction phase, the Town encountered an unanticipated increase in costs. Bayside was able to assist the Town with contract interpretations thereby generating the town a savings of $150,000.
“That’s what we are here for,” explains Bayside’s Senior Highway Engineer, Mike Rizzo. “We take great pleasure in working closely with our clients, from the planning and design phase through construction and project completion. Working with the Contractors, responding to any Requests for Information (RFI) and assisting the Town on any Contract Resolution or unknown field condition is an important part of any roadway project. We’re delighted to be a part of this important and much needed roadway improvement project for the Town of Georgetown.”
The Elm Street project was completed on time and under budget by nearly $200,000.
“We’re thankful Mike was able to resolve what could have been a costly oversight during the construction process, Georgetown Highway Department Surveyor, Peter Durkee explains. “Throughout our 7 years working with Bayside I’ve always been able to count on expert advice and counsel and quality results.”
