Six Corners Roundabout, Springfield, MA
In August 2020, Gagliarducci Construction, completed the reconstruction of the notorious Six Corner’s intersection in Springfield, MA. The $2.5-million-dollar project involved the creation of a new roundabout; a one-way circle.
In addition, new granite curbing, concrete walks, and stamped concrete pavement was also installed throughout the project’s limits. New site improvements, street lighting, and landscaping topped off the project’s design. Gagliarducci was able to complete the project less than eighteen months from breaking ground, and months ahead of the original project timeline. The venture’s success was in big part due to the effective collaboration between the City, design team, Gagliarducci Construction, and various other stakeholders in the reconstruction project.Get in touch!
DICKINSON STREET, SPRINGFIELD, MA
The City of Springfield, MA, experienced a massive drainage pipe failure and erosion event on a steep slope, separating a critical city artery from a bordering wetland and stream.
The project consisted of re-grading the one-acre, one-and-a-half to one slope, and installing a 5-foot section of large-diameter riprap and boulders. New drainage structures and pipe were installed at depths to over 17-feet. Once the slope was stabilized and the drainage system was repaired, Dickinson Street was fully reconstructed, including new gravel bases, pavement, concrete sidewalk and guardrail.Get in touch!
Big E Fairgrounds, West Springfield, MA
At the Big Eastern States Exposition fairgrounds in West Springfield, MA, Gagliarducci was contracted to extend a drainage channel and pave over it to provide more vendor space for the fair.
A check dam was built and de-watering was performed daily to remove groundwater. Box culverts were used to extend the channel almost 100 feet. A retaining wall was built along the last culvert using Versa-Lok blocks. Sewer, water, and electric utilities were installed before finally paving the area, creating an additional 5,400 sq. ft. of vendor space.Get in touch!
Baystate Wing Hospital - Emergency Department Expansion
Gagliarducci was contracted to reconstruct the rear parking lot at Baystate Wing Hospital in Palmer, MA. An additional eighty parking spaces were provided by expanding and re-configuring the existing parking lot. A subsurface infiltration system was installed to handle the redesigned storm drainage system. A Versa-Lok block retaining wall was constructed to expand the area of construction.
The larger work area allowed for the hospital’s ring road to be reconstructed around the building addition, thus maintaining traffic flow around the hospital. The patient drop-off area was re-constructed and re-paved, along with additional parking areas. The project was completed with no disruption in hospital services over the time of construction.Get in touch!

On the MassMutual Enfield campus, Gagliarducci completed several projects enhancing MassMutual’s Retirement Services facility. Initially contracted through Pavarini North East Construction, Gagliarducci demolished and reconstructed the main entrance and visitor parking areas.
We installed new drainage lines, a new bituminous parking lot, granite curbing and edging, and concrete sidewalks. Landscaping and irrigation was also included under our scope of work. A heated, imprinted, color sidewalk was installed between bluestone-clad site walls, and is the main focal point of the new visitor entrance. Gagliarducci was also contracted directly to rebuild two on-site parking lots, and provide excavation and backfill activities for upgrades to the facility’s electrical and data center systems.Get in touch!
