MTA Bridges and Tunnels
Biennial Inspection and Design of Miscellaneous Structural Repairs at Throgs Neck Bridge
The Throgs Neck Bridge is a suspension bridge which connects Bronx and Queens. The main suspended span is 1,800 feet long, with an anchorage-to-anchorage total length of 2,910 feet. The total length of the bridge and approaches is 13,400 feet. The approach viaducts to the Throgs Neck Bridge consist of continuous plate-girder spans carried on reinforced concrete piers.
SEPC performed work as a sub-consultant on the project. We performed the biennial bridge inspections, prepared inspection & flag reports for the inspected bridges, and prepared sketches using Bentley MicroStation. The scope of work included review of existing documents, field inspection of structural components including floorbeams, subfloorbeams, orthotropic deck, stringers, etc. and other miscellaneous tasks needed to complete the task. The prime consultant’s fee for the entire project was over $1 Million.
