PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Staten Island Expressway is part of Interstate 287. The heavily used expressway connects Staten Island to Brooklyn and New Jersey and is considered as one of the most congested roads in New York City.

ֲý Civil was awarded the Staten Island Expressway reconstruction project in December 2011. The project includes widening a 3.2-mile stretch of the highway by adding one HOV lane in the median, demolishing three flyover bridges and rehabilitating another three, resurfacing the highway with 80,000 tons of asphalt pavement and more than 20,000 cubic yards of concrete roadway pavement, and installing a noise barrier system along the service roads between Slosson Avenue and Victory Boulevard to reduce the noise generated by the increased traffic volume.

To ensure that the project was completed on time, ֲý proactively coordinated with the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), local agencies, and third-party utilities to solve issues such as unanticipated rock containing asbestos and the significant number of potholes created during harsh winter months.
