About the Project
Casella Construction, Inc. (CCI) was contracted to perform earthwork and install erosion control measures along a 5-mile project designed to completely replace the existing 115 KV line and structures from Weathersfield, Vermont to Ascutney, Vermont.
CCI constructed this project with an aggressive schedule consisting of 3 crews working consecutively along the right-of-way. Work included construction of 4-miles of stone access road, installation and removal of 3,200 timber mats, construction of 50 structure pads, removal of 1,200 cy of rock by hydraulic hammer, installation of 63 culverts, installation and maintenance of 7,000 lf of reinforced silt fence and straw wattle, removal of 84 wood structures, and restoration of the entire right-of-way at the completion of the project.
CCI completed all right-of-way access construction and earthwork in 8 weeks, allowing linework to begin significantly ahead of schedule. All access construction work was performed while the existing 115 KV line was active.
