Scope of Work:
This project for the Connecticut Department of Transportation is for the Stamford Metro-North Railroad Station.  The scope of work includes extending the pedestrian overpass at Track 5 to allow for access from State Street directly to the platforms, and includes an escalator, elevator and static staircase.  The work also includes extending the two middle platform canopies to provide extended coverage and adding additional shelter to the platforms.  Construction of a static staircase and sidewalk will be performed at the far eastern end of the platform for Track 4, to allow access from Atlantic Street and Station Place.  The overpass extensions, elevator and escalator will be supported by the use of mini-piles.  This work must be coordinated with Metro-North for track access.  Infrastructure work includes extension of the existing electrical systems along the platform canopies and associated shelters, as well as the pedestrian overpass and associated stair facilities.  This work will include demolition/removal of the existing light standards in platform canopy extension areas and replacement with canopy lighting systems.
