Van Wyck Expressway Widening – Atlantic Avenue Bridge
GEODesign, working for a contractor, designed this complicated SOE system for replacement of the Atlantic Avenue Bridge over the Van Wyck Expressway in Queens. The project is part of an overall multi-phase effort to add a lane in both directions to the Van Wyck for improved access to JFK airport. The entire bridge will be replaced in three stages in order to keep it open to traffic during construction. These photos depict the first stage of replacement of the East Abutment.
