2011-2015 Pearl Harbor Memorial (Q) Bridge Inspection


HAKS is providing biennial and semi-final inspection services to the Connecticut Department of Transportation for the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge and other structures within the limits of the ongoing New Haven Harbor Corridor Improvement Program. This $3 billion multimodal transportation project includes public transit enhancements and roadway improvements between West Haven and Branford. The new 4,735-foot Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge is a 10-lane extradosed cable-stayed bridge carrying I-95 over the Quinnipiac River (“Q” Bridge). 

The northbound structure was opened to northbound traffic in June 2012. Since September 2013, the structure is carrying both northbound and southbound traffic, while the original girder-and-floorbeam bridge is demolished and the new southbound structure is built in its place. In addition to our work on the new Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge, HAKS continued to perform biennial and special inspections on the original structure (built in 1958) while it was still in service; semi-final inspections on several new bridges in the I-95/I-91 Interchange, including the Route 34 “Flyover”; and multiple ancillary sign structures. HAKS is also providing input during the development of the owner’s manual for this extradosed cable-stayed bridge—the first of its kind in the United States.
