Project Cost: $375,000.00

Huron assisted the City of Yale Downtown Development Authority (DDA) in applying for, obtaining, and administering the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), 80% grant with 20% matching local funds. Some of the major factors in attracting the grants were the environmental and aesthetic aspects of the project.


The project consisted of 2 locations. The first location is situated in the heart Yale in front of the City offices. This portion consisted of the paving of 3 municipal parking lots, block retaining walls and poured veneered concrete wall extensions. The second portion is located a few blocks away at the southwest corner at the intersection of Mechanic and South Kennefic Street. This portion of the project included construction of parking lot, rain garden and the replacement of a sanitary sewer.


The project included 2 acres of paving, 300 SF of concrete sidewalk, 400 FT of pour concrete veneered wall, 200 FT of block landscape wall, 300 FT of sanitary sewer, 325FT of storm sewer improvements, landscaping and a 1300 SF of rain garden.

Huron was responsible for the design and construction management of the project. We provided construction staking and contract administration including inspection and observation, as well as coordination of project progress meetings, resolving site issues, and conflict resolution.
