Rehabilitation of Pulaski Skyway Route 1 & 9

  • Client: New Jersey Department of Transportation
  • Location: Hudson and Essex Counties, NJ

Project Overview

Pulaski Skyway, a 3.5-mile long, four-lane bridge built in 1932, did not meet the current highway bridge standards. The $1.2B renovation provided full rehabilitation of the superstructure and substructure of the 1&9 Pulaski Skyway and its ramps (Broadway, Kearny, and Newark). Our firm was responsible for the substructure and superstructure steel rehabilitation of the main line west end of the structure.

Our responsibilities included performing an in-depth inspection of the steel superstructure along with the concrete and steel piers, preparing a ROW report and completing final structural documents for the rehabilitation measures. We coordinated with the railroad as well as prepared utility base plans to show existing surface utility facilities, conducting subsurface utility engineering; developed alternative of accommodation plan; updated preliminary construction staging plans and detour/traffic control plan (TCP) and prepared signing and striping plans.
