Springfield - Flood Protection System Rehab

E.T. & L. Corp. was low bidder in May 2018 on a project for the City of Springfield Department of Public Works. The $3 million project is the rehabilitation of the Springfield Flood Protection System along the Connecticut River. The work involved in this project includes concrete floodwall repairs of approximately 800 linear feet of flood damage reduction channels, including stone masonry and brick repairs, the capping of approximately 20 feet of floodwall, removal and reconstruction of approximately 310 linear feet of deteriorated snow dump parapet wall and replacement of 60 linear feet of deteriorated floodwall. Work also includes the addition of fill for surface drainage grading away from floodwalls for about 4,550 linear feet, and 1.6 acres of tree clearing. Precast manholes and nearly 4,600 linear feet of 8” subdrain will be replaced along the existing floodwall, including an 80 foot section which will be pipe jacked under the active railroad tracks to discharge into the nearby outlet. The work is located in four (4) major locations along 5 ½ miles of the east bank of the Connecticut River within the City of Springfield. The work is planned for a 2019 completion.
