Kosciuszko Bridge Replacement
The Kosciuszko replacement bridge is a cable-stayed bridge, constructed in two phases. Phase I involves construction of a new 1.1 mile-long eastbound bridge (Queens-bound Bridge), and Phase II involves a similar westbound structure (the Brooklyn-bound Bridge).
Working for the Skanska-Kiewit-EECO Joint Venture, MRCE performed geotechnical peer review of the Brooklyn and Queens Connector embankment sections and instrumented a lateral load test of drilled shafts supporting the pylons. The replacement Bridge project is the largest single contract ever awarded by the New York State Department of Transportation.
