VHB is currently working on the Albany Avenue Safety Improvements Project in Hartford, Connecticut extending from Westbourne Parkway/Homestead Avenue to the west to Bedford Street to the east. The project’s main focus is to address safety, deteriorating infrastructure and socio-economic challenges along this area of the roadway. To aid in visualizing the improvements that will be made VHB developed a 3d visualization that shows the proposed new roadway blended in to the existing conditions using Autodesk’s InfraWorks 360 software.
