In 2012, Clark Engineering was selected to design and create streets for long-term sustainability, eliminating expensive repairs. Clark completed the street design of 36 blocks on the west half of Groton. The preliminary design was completed in 2013 with the City’s intent to complete multiple phases as the budget allows. In 2014, Phase 1 began with completing street improvements to 15 blocks. The project cost was $1.2 Million. In 2015, Phase two began with three blocks of street improvements. The project cost was $300,000. In 2019, Phase 3 began with completing street improvement to 7 blocks. The project cost was $450,000. The City plans to continue with the street improvements in the future.
Clark was responsible for the topographic survey and design, cost estimating, construction administration, and construction staking. The project has allowed the city to regain full use of the streets and minimize annual repair costs. Through excellent communication and quality project management, Clark continues to ensure that the client’s goals and priorities are exceeded.
