Nicholson has been awarded the foundation contract for the New York State Department of Transportation’s (NYSDOT) I-278 bridge rehab project.
The overall, US$78M (£61.7M) project includes the rehabilitation of five bridges, including four on the Staten Island Expressway.
Nicholson has been awarded the design-build micropile contract for two of the five bridges by China Construction America’s Civil division. The project includes the replacement of both bridge deck and abutment structures.
The micropiles will be drilled beneath the existing bridges to limit downtime during the bridge replacement.
Nicholson’s eastern region vice president Dino Kartofilis said: “The State of New York has made a tremendous commitment to upgrading their infrastructure.
“We’ve worked with the NYSDOT many times over the years, and we’re looking forward to another successful project with them.”
The project is currently still in the design phase, with the construction phase expected to be completed in the autumn of 2019.
