Design-Build Reconstruction of NY 347
NYS Department of Transportation
LKMA provided construction inspection services as part of a Design-Build Team for the $28 Million reconstruction and widening of NY 347, between NY 111 and Mount Pleasant Road, on the Smithtown-Hauppauge border. The roadway was constructed in accordance with the NY State Department of Transportation’s “Green Route 347” vision plan. That environmentally sustainable design concept included features such as a parallel path shared by bicyclists and pedestrians, a landscaped median barrier with a decorative concrete finish, extensive landscaping, decorative noise walls, bus kiosks, bike racks, and decorative, solar-powered street lighting. Challenges during construction included safely maintaining and protecting the traveling public on a major arterial highway which carries approximately 50,000 vehicles per day.
