Hylan Boulevard Bridges Rehabilitation


HAKS is providing project scoping and preliminary/final design services for the $7 million rehabilitation of two bridges carrying Hylan Boulevard over the Staten Island Expressway (I-278) for NYSDOT, Region 11. The two “sister” bridges provide a major route for cars and trucks, MTA buses and pedestrians over the Staten Island Expressway in northeastern Staten Island near the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Both structures are two-span, steel multi-girder bridges with concrete decks and asphalt-wearing surfaces.

Bridge decks will be removed and replaced with a new reinforced isotropic concrete deck. The project also features new armorless bridge joints, approach slabs, bridge sidewalks with parapet, single slope bridge barriers, lampposts, and pedestrian fencing. The superstructure steel and substructures will remain at both bridges, with localized concrete repairs performed at the abutments and piers. At the northbound bridge, the bearings will be replaced with new elastomeric bearings and the pedestals will be reconstructed. Utilities embedded within the sidewalk of the bridges will be relocated and supported between superstructure steel below the new bridge decks. The approach roadways will be milled and paved to the service road intersections, approach sidewalks and curbs replaced and approach guide railing transitions to the new bridges installed.

Services include preparation of project scoping reports and contract bid documents along with all engineering design services for structural, highway, utility, drainage, and traffic. Topographic surveys, work zone traffic control design and street lighting design will also be performed. Public outreach to the local community and officials plus coordination with New York City agencies, utility companies and MTA Bridges & Tunnels are components of this high-profile project.
