    East 78th St. Pedestrian Bridge

    Client: New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT)

    This project consisted of the removal the existing 150 ton concrete pedestrian bridge over the FDR Drive and the installation of a new pre-fabricated 80-ton structural steel bridge. The work was accomplished at night within a 2 to 5 hour timeframe with complete closures of the FDR Drive. Utilizing a 500 ton barge mounted crane, both approach ramps were removed and replaced in compliance with ADA requirements. The waterfront ramp is supported on 12” diameter mini-cassions that were value engineered into the project by Ferreira Construction.
