Danbury High School Tennis Courts

New tennis courts constructed at Danbury High School are manufactured with "post tension concrete".  This type of concrete construction lengthens the life of concrete by pre-stressing the concrete with lineal cables running through the slab in a grid pattern.  By adding tension to these cables, it make the concrete stronger, extending its life and reduces cracking.

Reservoir Street Culvert Replacement

The Reservoir Street Culvert Replacement project was the full replacement of a culvert which reached the end of its useful life span. The culvert dissects Reservoir Street in the south portion of Danbury near the Bethel town line.  The box culvert was completed ahead of schedule and within budget.  This is a heavily traveled roadway with over 2000 trips per day and is a vital artery connecting the two municipalities.  In addition to the culvert replacement, the roadway area has been widened at the intersection.  Reservoir Road has been improved with resurfacing throughout the roadway.
