Providing a safe and scenic passage through Mount Greylock Historic Parkway

Stantec led a team of landscape architects, botanists, preservation planners, engineers, and environmental specialists for the rehabilitation of the Mount Greylock Historic Parkway. Together, we addressed issues ranging from improvement to safety and drainage, enhancement of the scenic vistas, stabilization of slopes and walls, protection of natural resources, and preservation of the existing roadway.

Our key responsibilities included overall project aesthetics and the rehabilitation of historic design features, as well as creative solutions to improve drainage while maintaining the natural look of the 13 mile mountain road. The team developed presentations for community workshops and an operations and maintenance manual.

Sensitive design solutions preserved existing stone box culverts, stone retaining walls, and rare plants and habitat. Timber guardrails, scenic vistas and trail crossings were restored and enhanced. Our ability to complete the designs, permits, and construction documents within an extremely aggressive schedule has allowed visitors to continue to enjoy this unique landmark.
