City of Albany Delaware Avenue Reconstruction

CHA Construction Engineering Services (CES) provided full-time construction administration and inspection services for the reconstruction of Delaware Avenue. This $15 million project involved the full building line to building line reconstruction of a primary commuter route. Notable and/or unique construction aspects on this project included:

  • Deep storm drainage installations
  • Extensive overhead and underground utility relocations
  • Full-depth roadway reconstruction while maintaining daily traffic (no closures)
  • Full sidewalk replacements while maintaining access to businesses and homes
  • 12 new signalized intersections
  • Decorative paving treatments
  • LED street lighting system

During reconstruction of a sidestreet, graves from an unknown cemetery were uncovered. CHA’s staff coordinated the securing of the site with state and local authorities.  We then oversaw the archeological effort required to map and exhume skeletal remains that were found.
