Claremont Parkway Bridge over Metro-North Railroad


Bronx, New York<br style='line-height:2px'>New York City Department of Transportation

HAKS managed the $10.7 million replacement of the Claremont Parkway Bridge superstructure over Metro-North tracks in the Bronx. Services included resident engineering inspection, materials testing and constructability reviews.

Claremont Parkway Bridge is a single-span, concrete-encased steel superstructure with a non-composite reinforced concrete deck supported on stone masonry. The work took place within the special requirements that Metro-North places on construction operations in its rights-of-way. HAKS’ field staff coordinated with Metro-North on force account work and safety requirements. Traffic was maintained on the bridge in both directions at all times, and our field staff assured ready access of vehicular and pedestrian traffic throughout.

Demolition was performed over half of the bridge at a time so that traffic could be maintained over the other half. Other demolition included removal of the bridge superstructure, approach roadway pavement, sidewalks, curbs, guide rail, fences and utilities.

Additional construction items included new water and gas mains, electric lines, approach roadways, pavement markings, signs, traffic signals and street lighting.

The project received a 2015 ACEC New York Gold Award for Engineering Excellence.
