As you travel around New England you’ll see hundreds of projects E.T.& L. Corp. has completed. We often feel a bit of nostalgia for the places we’ve worked and people we’ve met along the way. Here’s a small sampling of those past projects.

 
In March 2012, E.T. & L. Corp. was awarded the East Brookfield Shore Road bridge replacement project by MassDOT. The Shore Road Bridge at the Quaboag Pond was in need of repair. The existing steel structure was fully removed in a single phase. A new integral abutment bridge with precast pre-stressed concrete box beams on cast in place abutments was constructed to replace the existing structure. The new abutments sit on five HP 12x84 steel piles driven to bedrock. Shore Road was…
Precast bridge sections (Inverset panels) that were previously used as temporary bridges / ramps during the “Big Dig” are being refabricated for use as a new bridge for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. E.T.& L. Corp.  transported three 72 foot long by 9 foot wide Inverset panels from MassDOT’s maintenance yard in Littleton to their yard in Stow to be refabricated.  Work associated with the refabrication included removing approximately 20 feet of 8 inch thick reinforced…
In early 2012, MassDOT awarded E.T. & L. Corp a $1 million project for the construction of a Park and Ride Lot in Whately, MA. The Park and Ride Lot will be located at the intersections of Route 5/10 and Route 116, just off of Interstate I-91. In addition to the construction of the park and ride lot, this project includes traffic signal reconstruction, drainage work, a mechanically stabilized earth wall, and the construction of a bus shelter. The project will utilize porous asphalt paving,…
In December 2011, the Town of Haddam, Connecticut awarded E.T.& L. Corp. the Landfill Closure & Transfer Station Construction project. The awarded contract for $2.1 million requires construction of a new transfer station over the existing landfill, and the subsequent closure of the adjacent old transfer station. The new transfer station includes a 3.3 acre cap over the existing landfill, installation of a 36 foot by 24 foot pre-engineered building, and the erection of a 225 foot by 40…
 In February, 2012, the Town of Greenfield MA awarded E.T. & L. Corp. a $335,000. contract to replace a sewer line across the Green River in Greenfield MA.  The original sewer line was severely damaged in August 2011 during Tropical Storm Irene.  The new sewer line consists of an approximately 170 foot long concrete encased 16” ductile iron pipe with a stone gabion mat on top.  E.T. & L. performed the work in two phases, crossing half of the river at a time, utilizing a sheet pile…
In July 2011, E.T. & L. Corp. was awarded the Fitchburg – Rte 2A (Kimball St.) and Route 31 (River St.) bridge replacement project by MassDOT. Both the Route 2A and Route 31 bridges over the Nashua River were in need of repair. The existing Route 2A steel structure and concrete pier are to be fully removed in a single phase. During construction, a temporary utility bridge will be required to support a sewer bypass line until the line can be relocated on the new structure. Each new abutment…
In August 2011, E.T.& L. Corp. received the contract for a MassDOT bridge rehabilitation project in Chicopee, MA. The I-90 bridge located over Route I-391 was in desperate need of repair, but because of its location along the busy Massachusetts Turnpike, could not undergo a full reconstruction. E.T.& L. began the first of three construction phases in October 2011. Keeping limited traffic open in both directions throughout, the full scope of work includes: replacement of the reinforced…
In March 2011, the City of Haverhill and Aggregate Industries awarded the Southern Mound Closure project to E.T.& L. Corp. Located at the former Haverhill Municipal Landfill,  the Southern Mound contains  35 acres of landfilled waste. Before capping the site, the project first calls for extensive regrading and shaping of 250,000 cubic yards of material. The capping system itself will be Standard MassDEP, using 40 mil HDPE geomembrane liner. E.T.& L. began work in late May 2011, will…
  Located over the Taunton River, the Summer Street Bridge spans the town line between Bridgewater and Middleborough, MA. In January 2011, MassDOT awarded E.T.& L. Corp. the contract for its replacement. E.T.& L. began work in the spring of 2011, first demolishing the existent Summer Street bridge structure, then erecting a new single span, precast concrete beam bridge in the same location. The new bridge is an integral abutment bridge with precast concrete abutments, wingwalls, and…
 As a result of Tropical Storm Irene, the Cold River surged, causing sections of Route 2 in Charlemont and Savoy, MA to be washed out and the roadway made unsafe and impassable. In mid-October 2011, MassDOT put out an emergency repair contract, which they awarded to E.T.& L. Corp. This $5.3 million contract required E.T.& L. to construct approximately 5,000 cubic yards of gabion walls between Route 2 and the Cold River to facilitate the reopening of the roadway by December 15, 2011. To…
 During Tropical Storm Irene, the swelling of the North River washed out an existing, privately owned dam in Colrain, MA.  This dam regulated water levels in a canal that provides water to a manufacturing plant along Route 112 in Colrain. This private owner hired E.T.& L. Corp. to perform emergency work authorized by the DEP, ACOE, and FEMA to repair the damaged spillway and construct a temporary dam to control water levels in the canal. Once authorized, E.T.& L. mobilized to Colrain…
 On August 28, 2011, Tropical Storm Irene dumped six to ten inches of heavy rain on portions of the Western Massachusetts causing rivers to rage and washout everything in their path. This deluge destroyed dams, culverts, roadways, and bridges in and along many rivers.  On Monday morning, August 29, 2011, MassDOT District #1 asked E.T.& L. Corp. to mobilize our forces to Route 8A in Hawley, MA; They needed us to quickly reconstruct several sections of the roadway that had been completely…
This project  in Williamstown, MA replaces a deteriorated concrete, planted retaining wall along Route 2 with a new planted wall. In addition, a galvanized steel pile and concrete panel retaining wall must be installed. The reconstructed concrete evergreen wall will be built using stacked concrete bins filled with soil and  plantings. This wall will support the slope above Route 2, while the steel pile and concrete panel wall will support the slope below. The latter will be constructed by…
The bridge on Route 112 crossing the Griswoldville Canal in Colrain, MA has been in need of repair for many years. MassDOT awarded E.T.& L. Corp. with the  $746,000 contract for the bridge’s replacement at the end of 2010. The work entails demolishing the existing bridge structure, driving a total of 16 piles to support a precast concrete lagging wall, and installing a new 47’ culvert structure. Work began in April 2011 and it will be complete by November 25, 2011.
In early 2011, MassDOT awarded E.T.& L. Corp. a $9 million contract for a bridge project in Lawrence, MA. The majority of work consists of constructing a new CanalStreetBridge over the SpicketRiver. The existent stone arch bridge that sits next to the old Oxford Paper Mill is a visible reminder of the city’s mill-town history, but it has been deteriorating for some years. So rather than replace the old bridge, the city and the state opted to construct a new single span, steel plate girder…
May of 2010 brought E.T.& L. Corp. its first Design Build project with CSX Bridge Bundle #3. E.T.& L. is the managing partner in a joint venture with J.F. White Contracting Company for this project for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Bridge Bundle #3 is part of a comprehensive statewide project to raise bridges and, in some locations, undercut the railroad tracks, so that CSX can run their double stack freight trains in and out of Massachusetts. The two year project…
In 2007, E.T.& L. completed its largest project to date: a $37 million grade-separated interchange replacing the Sagamore Bridge Rotary, infamous for causing terrible traffic on and off the popular vacation destination of Cape Cod. The project essentially lowered Route 6 (Scenic Highway) below Route 3 and constructed a new Route 3 bridge, thus streamlining travel to the Cape. In order to allow traffic to flow during construction, three (3) temporary bridges were erected to carry travelers…
This project consists of the demolition and reconstruction of an existing bridge carrying Route 19 (Wales Road) over Mill Brook. E.T. & L. Corp. will complete the project in two phases, utilizing a temporary traffic signal to control traffic during construction. The new bridge will be supported by concrete abutments with a steel pile foundation. Sixty-six (66) foot long concrete NEXT beams will then be set on top of the concrete abutments, followed by the pouring of a concrete bridge deck. …
 For this Massachusetts Department of Transportation project, E.T.& L. Corp. improved the structural integrity of a wooden, covered bridge circa 1898. Because of its status as a national historic landmark, the project was designed to protect and preserve the existing wooden structure. Most significantly, six steel girders and crash-tested timber bridge rails were installed, restoring the bridge for safe vehicular and truck traffic. This $1.9 million contract was completed ahead of schedule…
Just below the northern slope of Mount Greylock lies the 4,300 foot Runway 11-29 at the Harriman & West Airport in North Adams, Massachusetts. E.T.& L. Corp. was awarded a $6 million contract to reconstruct the full runway in 2010. Existing taxiway stubs were also relocated to new locations, a new airfield lighting system was installed, and an extended runway safety area was constructed.
