Scope of Work:
This $64.3 Million project consists of the replacement of the Bronx River Parkway Bridge over Metro-North Railroad with a new steel plate multi-girder superstructure supported on new integral abutments installed behind the existing abutments. The work also includes the construction of new retaining walls, shoulders and roadway improvements including the replacement of the roadway lighting, drainage, sign structures and installation of traffic cameras and future-use ITS conduits. This project also includes the structural repairs and pavement widening of the Bronx River Parkway Bridge over the Bronx River.
Due to the proximity to an operating railroad, this Project requires extensive coordination with Metro-North in managing track outages and railroad flagman services. Additionally, this Project requires coordination with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation in managing tree removals, Parks improvement work and Arch Bridge Repairs; and coordination with New York City Department of Environmental Protection due to the proximity to sewer lines.
