A Structal-Bridges Project Wins an Award at the NSBA 2014 Prize Bridge Competition


June 19, 2014

The project to replace the access ramp over Interstate 95, undertaken in the scope of the rehabilitation of the Alexander Hamilton Bridge in New York City, received the Merit Award in the Medium Span category at the NSBA 2014 Prize Bridge Awards organized by the National Steel Bridge Alliance. Structal-Bridges supplied 20 box girders for this 659-ft. (201 meter) ramp that features five spans.

The Alexander Hamilton Bridge, which crosses the Harlem River, links the Bronx to the Washington Heights borough in Manhattan as part of Interstate 95.

Various details of the project are presented in the June 2014 issue of Modern Steel Construction Magazine (page 38), which is available in both hardcopy and digital versions.

Structal-Bridges supplied a total of 4,180 tons of steel components to widen the Alexander Hamilton Bridge and repair the adjoining access ramps. The fabrication of the components was completed at the Canam Group plants in Claremont, New Hampshire and Point of Rocks, Maryland.
