Hudson River Park Morton Street Bulkhead Restoration
Mueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers (MRCE) served as the project lead for the Morton Street bulkhead restoration in Hudson River Park. This site parallels Route 9A between the bikeway and the US Pierhead line between Christopher and Morton Streets. The bulkhead in the area became unstable and caused damage to the park and its finishes.
MRCE provided marine, geotechnical and site civil engineering, landscape architectural, cost estimating, subconsultant management and construction administration services for bulkhead repair and replacement and the upland park finishes and improvements. During the design development, MRCE provided management of the landscape architect retained for the replacement of the existing walkway and esplanade, and developed construction documents for the reconstruction of the bulkhead that included drilling pipe piles through the existing bulkhead and inclined tiebacks to stabilized lateral movement of the bulkhead. Construction administration services including review of contractor submittals, special Inspection of tiebacks, and settlement monitoring services of existing bulkhead by Automated Motorized Total Station (AMTS) and borehole inclinometers.
