Canam-Bridges was granted the contract for a major upgrade to the Pulaski Skyway Bridge, a four-lane highway bridge running through Jersey City, Kearny and Newark, (NJ), owned by the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
For this arch bridge, Canam will manufacture 61 through plate girders and 255 stringers totaling 1,370 tons of steel. These components will be used to replace an existing section of the highway and a new suspended span. Manufacturing will begin in February 2018 and deliveries are scheduled from May to June 2018. Interesting to know that this is a return for Canam, it already supplied 3,100 tons of steel components under a previous contract to repair the same bridge years ago.
Opened in 1932, this 3.5-mile (5.6-kilometer) long bridge crosses the Passaic and Hackensack rivers, and the New Jersey Meadowlands. About 67,000 vehicles cross this bridge each day. The highway is named after Kazimierz Pułaski.
