Cherry Valley Bridge Replacement Project
Garden City, NY
This design/build project will replace the existing 150 year old bridge and, once complete the structure will meet the New York State DOT minimum vertical clearance requirement of 14 ft. allowing trucks to safely pass beneath the bridge, avoiding strikes and causing varying degrees of damage, resulting in train service delays.
The project has been divided into three major components:
- Abutment modification
- Jacking the Bridge
- Replacing the Bridge
New abutments and footings have been constructed to support the new double track and third rail system.
During one of five weekend outages, RCC crews removed the existing 650,000 lb. structure and the pre-assembled deck was moved into position.
