A 40-year-old steel pier that still stands and endures heavy traffic, the supporting points of which, also including the upper girders or bearings, have been significantly damaged. We are in charge of reinforcing the corners of the piers, including their surrounding areas and supporting points.
Widening work is carried out in order to mitigate chronic congestion on expressways. Projects in city centers require considerably challenging design, fabrication and implementation techniques, as they involve the renovation of structures within limited space while ensuring continuous traffic flow.
Feature:Steel deck replacement of Triborough Bridge (Harem River Lift Span) originally built in 1936.
