Rehabilitation of Five I-278 Bridges in Staten Island and Brooklyn, D900041, PIN: X731.47
The New York State Department of Transportation has initiated a $78 million project to rehabilitate five I-278 bridges. Four of these bridges are on the Staten Island Expressway and its service roads over Mosel Avenue and the Staten Island Railway tracks, and the fifth is the 79th Street Bridge over the Gowanus Expressway in Brooklyn. This rehabilitation project complements other recent NYSDOT improvements to the I-278 corridor, and will deliver an improved riding surface and enhanced safety for motorists and pedestrians.
The Five Bridges:
The project was designed with the community in mind. To minimize disruptions, the contractor will be removing the existing concrete roadway in large sections in order to reduce the use of demolition equipment. New precast concrete beams will be fabricated off-site for the four Staten Island bridges. In Brooklyn, a temporary bridge will be installed adjacent to 79th Street. This allows the work to be done in one construction stage, which reduces lane closures and daily work operations, resulting in less disruptions for local residents and commuters.
