Richmond Road

The highlight of this $25 million NYCDDC project was the installation of 72" welded steel water main on Richmond Road and Vanderbilt Ave between Narrows Road North and Tomkins Ave. The most challenging aspect of the project was the tie in of the new 72" system with the existing trunk main in the intersection on Narrows Road North and Richmond Road. The tie in was at an invert depth of 18 ft that was sheeted using a combination of soldier piles, steel bracing, plates and wood lagging. Upgraded street lighting and traffic lights were also installed along with a new asphalt roadway on concrete base.
