Replacement Design for NYSDOT Bridges Along Route 42

Route 42 Bridge 1025200
Project Overview: 
McLaren and Halmar International, LLC teamed up for this $14.1 million emergency reconstruction contract for the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) to design/build State Route 42 in Greene County. The 2 bridges and 6 miles of road, on this vital artery, were destroyed by severe flooding caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. Within a week of the contract, McLaren was ordering steel for the bridges and had it onsite being constructed within weeks. Work included the removal and replacement of BIN 1025200 and BIN 1025190 crossing the West Kill; reconstruction of the roadway embankment and pavement section at various locations; repair of shoulder and pavement washouts; replacement and resetting of guiderail, cleaning and reestablishing ditches; removal of debris from highway ROW; and cleaning and replacement of culverts as necessary.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided full bridge replacement design including piles, foundations, abutments, wingwalls, bearings, superstructure, and guiderails. This effort included the development of plans, specifications, and the necessary construction inspection to assure construction was in conformance with the plans and specifications. In addition to the bridge work, McLaren also provided planning and peer review services for the bridge approaches along Route 42. McLaren’s engineers worked in close collaboration with Halmar, steel suppliers, and onsite construction workers laying roadbed and asphalt, and erecting steel and concrete pilings and trusses. This project demonstrated that when it comes to restoring vital infrastructures such as bridges and roadways the design-build delivery system offers the DOT significant advantages in cost, time, flexibility, and accountability versus traditional infrastructure delivery methods.
