2018.16 Emergency Vehicle Ramps - Blackstrap Road

Construction Contract InfoblackstrapEVRAugust2018.jpg
Contractor: Shaw Brothers Construction, Inc. 
Bid Amount: $659,771.50
Projected Completion Date: May 31, 2019
Project Scope:  The work consists of constructing two Emergency Vehicle Ramps from Blackstrap Road to the Maine Turnpike in the Town of Falmouth, Maine. The work includes excavation, roadway
gravel and pavement, guardrail installation and maintenance of traffic.

The ramps will be gated and are primarily used by the Maine Turnpike Authority maintenance vehicles, but will also be available for other emergency vehicles, such as the Fire Department or Police Department, as needed.  The need for this project arises from the Authority’s desire to increase safety by having maintenance vehicles utilize vehicle ramps to change direction instead of using a paved median crossover.  Eliminating this maneuver will increase safety for both patrons of the Turnpike and highway maintenance employees.
