Provided Design and Construction Administration services for this project. The subject area is located along Palmer Road from Saw Mill River Road to Central Park Avenue (CR 100) and also included the bridge carrying Palmer Road over Central Park Avenue.

The project goal was to rehabilitate Palmer Road by pavement milling and asphalt resurfacing, and performing miscellaneous tasks such as adjusting hardware elevations, pavement markings, curb, sidewalk and minor traffic signal work. The bridge rehabilitation consisted of addressing safety issues, the restoration of deteriorated members to As-Built capacity, and the application of protective coatings and other measures to prevent future deterioration. Palmer Road has numerous horizontal and vertical curves which significantly limit sight distance. Factors limiting sight distance include the horizontal curvature of the roadway, presence of vehicles parked along the north shoulder of Palmer Road and the close proximity of the intersection of Palmer Road with Saw Mill River Road.
