LKB is currently completing construction inspection services (project close out) for an $8.3 million, federally-funded contract that will provide the replacement of the existing bridges, which carry Long Beach Road over Barnum Island Creek at the north end of Island Park.
The existing superstructures were replaced with pre-stressed box beams. They, in turn, were supported by new abutments constructed behind the existing abutment, which now serve as retaining walls. Other major work included construction of new approach slabs and guide rails, along with wing wall replacement and regrading of approach embankments.
The construction was subject to NYSDOT’s MURK and CEES reporting and record-keeping requirements, as well as Federal Aid Policy Guidelines 635 and 637.
