UTILIZATION OF HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION SPECIFICATIONS AND TECHNIQUES FOR MASS TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS

The paper describes the use of highway construction specifications and techniques for mass transportation projects in Connecticut. The Department of Transportation has undertaken several mass transportation projects. Two of the projects involving highway specifications were the construction of high level platforms at 22 locations along the Penn Central Railroad between New Haven and Greenwich and the people mover demonstration project at Bradley International Airport. Highway specifications were incorporated into these projects to varying degrees based on the nature of the project. This was done to maximize the use of time-tested specifications.
