NJ Transit initiated a program designed to increase the clearance of the Raritan Valley Line crossings through the City of Plainfield. The original bridge over Richmond Street was one of the first in the program and dated back more than a century. The rehabilitation of the deteriorated bridge structure while maintaining the historical significance presented a unique challenge.
The Port Newark Flyover bridge project is a unique project with many different types of construction activities compressed into a relatively compact area. The project is mainly a “U” shape bridge spanning over Corbin Street and Ports America’s train tracks operated by Conrail.
NJTransit discovered a slope failure along their RiverLINE Light rail tracks in September, 2011 shortly after several major rainstorms, including Hurricane Irene and the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee. The existing location involves two light rail tracks running at the bottom of a very steep slope along the edge of a Delaware River tributary.
Work began on this emergency slope repair contract in September, 2011. The exit ramp that connects Rt.440 and Smith Street to Garden State Parkway SB in Woodbridge Township, suffered damage from the extremely wet summer and fall seasons.
The Rt. 70 Bridge project involved the staged erection of two fixed bridges to replace a drawbridge constructed circa 1936 over the Manasquan River. The southern bridge was constructed first to hold both east and westbound traffic while the drawbridge was demolished, then, the northern bridge was constructed in its place.
This was a Design Build project in which we were responsible for the design and construction of a 4,500 foot long extension of the current Hudson Bergen Light Rail System. This extension consists of a single track expansion of the existing rail line from 22nd Street to 8th Street in Bayonne, NJ.
The Rt. 52, Contract A1 project is the first of two projects to replace the existing roadway and bridges between Ocean City and Somers Point, NJ. The project is one of the largest ever awarded by the NJDOT, and by far the largest roadway project in Southern New Jersey’s history.
The Rt. 1&9, Section 4T project involves the staged erection of two bridges to replace the historic Elizabeth Viaduct constructed circa 1929 over the Elizabeth River and the Downtown Market Place. The eastern bridge was constructed first to hold both north and southbound traffic while the existing viaduct was demolished to make room for the western bridge that was constructed in its place.
The Woodbridge Rail Station project was the demolition and reconstruction of a high-level, center island platform along the NJ Coast Line located between Main Street and Green Street in Woodbridge, New Jersey. The existing platform and facilities were deteriorated, outdated and in need of reconstruction.
This project involved the construction of a new interchange at milepost #69 of the Garden State Parkway located in the environmentally sensitive Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey. Prior to construction, there was only a NB exit and SB entrance from Rt. 532. The new interchange has all NB & SB entrance and exits for the local traveling public. These new ramps required widening of the Parkway mainline, which passes under Ocean County Route 532.
