Fairfield University – Bellarmine Campus
Fairfield University’s expansion into Bridgeport has brought new life to the former St. Ambrose parish. With this expansion, the university will offer a two-year associate degree program to local communities, with the goal of supporting low-income and first-generation students. The site will add a parking lot, ADA ramp, and new green drainage facilities, including a network of rain gardens and drywell structures. Preparation of site plans included demolition, site layout, grading and drainage, soil erosion and sediment control, planting, and construction details. Langan conducted a preliminary traffic/trip generation assessment memo to compare existing traffic patterns with the anticipated number of peak-hour trips generated by the development, and provided boundary and topographic surveys of the site.
