Since opening to traffic in 1939, the Kosciuszko Bridge, which carries the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway over Newtown Creek between Brooklyn and Queens, NY, has developed a reputation as a major bottleneck for motorists. To improve travel times and enhance safety, the New York State Department of Transportation replaced the existing 1.1-mile high-level truss bridge with a nine lane cable-stayed long-span structure as part of a $554 million design-build effort. The new Phase I bridge opened in 2017; the Phase II bridge construction will be procured separately following Phase I. Ultimately, the two bridges will carry five eastbound and four westbound lanes, as well as a bike lane and a pedestrian walkway.
STV provided construction management and quality assurance services and was responsible for verifying construction operations and material acceptance, reviewing the schedule and updates to verify monthly progress payments, and monitoring compliance with the data control, Manual for Uniform Record Keeping (MURK) requirements, and civil rights provisions of the contract.
