Posted June 23, 2016:  Contract 1 Final Plans

You can review the 85-page document that presents final engineering plans for the first phase of the construction project, known as "Contract 1."  This phase of the project, which should get underway in late Fall 2016, primarily involves 1) constructing an access road from the south end of Water Street toward the Battell parking lot (to be completed in Contract 2) and 2) building a new drainage system along the rail corridor from just north of the Merchants Row bridge to north of the Main Street bridge and out to Otter Creek.

You can also review a draft Spill Containment Plan that proposes a solution for "capping" the drainage system outleting to Otter Creek in the event of a hazardous waste spill in the rail corridor.
