PACO, with The LiRo Group, provided construction engineering inspection services during the rehabilitation work involving structural, bridge deck, signals & communications, and painting for the Throgs Neck and Whitestone bridges.
The Bronx-Whitestone Bridge was constructed in 1939 and serves a critical role in commuter traffic and logistics for New York City and the eastern seaboard of the United States. This $5 million construction engineering and inspection project was part of a $192 million overhaul of the transportation network connecting New York City to the rest of the state. Its primary goals were to address the facility’s structural needs to maintain a state of good repair while also upgrading the bridge elements to modern standards.
Major work included the replacement of roadway decks on the suspended span and approaches, rehabilitation of structural steel on suspended span and approaches, rehabilitation of the Bronx and Queens tower fender systems and painting of the approaches and tower fender systems.
