Presentation Topic: Widening of I-95N Exit 27A in Bridgeport

I-95 NB Exit 27A to Route 8 NB in Bridgeport carries 24,500 vehicles every day. The current configuration includes a one lane off-ramp transitioning to two lanes on Route 8. The proposed off-ramp will include two lanes, meant to reduce backups on I-95 and in-turn reduce the number of rear end collisions and sideswipes. The project features the reconfiguration of the steel girder splayed Bridge 00107 carrying I-95 NB and the widening of the curved steel girder Bridge 03532 carrying Exit 27A. Rehabilitation included new steel girders, steel strengthening, a new concrete counterweight, the addition of lateral bracing, deck patching, substructure widening and rehabilitation. The presentation will touch the project purpose and need, the design of these elements and the challenges that the team needed to overcome.

Speakers: James Fallon, P.E., CTDOT, Benjamin Szymanski, P.E., PMP, WSP, and Jessica Venuti, P.E., WSP

This presentation will provide an overview of ConnDOT Project 0096-0201 for the superstructure replacement of the Rochambeau bridges (01218 & 04180) carrying Interstate 84 over the Housatonic River, bridging Southbury and Newtown, CT (Winner of 2023 Art Gruhn Excellence in Construction Award for project over $5 million.). This project was undertaken due to the non-redundant fracture critical design of the existing superstructures and the Department’s commitment to remove these types of structures from the State’s bridge inventory. In this project, CE&I services were provided by Lochner, the design was provided by WSP and the construction was completed by The Middlesex Construction Co.

The CSCE of the present is the result of a merger of two organizations that occurred more than 35 years ago. The Connecticut Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1884, while the Connecticut Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1919. In 1958, the Section had 523 members. In 1955 (the nearest comparable year for reliable numbers), the Society had 1,033 members. The two organizations met separately until they merged in 1981, by mutual vote of membership, to become the Connecticut Society of Civil Engineers Section of American Society of Civil Engineers or CSCE.
