Date : 06/11/2015


Dr. Jayakumaran attended the 32nd Annual International Bridge Conference at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center on June 7-11, 2015 in Pittsburgh, PA.  He was a contributing author on the paper and presentation covering Accelerated Bridge Construction of the Patroon Island Bridge Deck Replacement.  The rapid deck demolition and construction is currently in progress and is using the "Best Value" concept by New York State Department of Transportation.  This project is also part of the NY Work's Accelerated Bridge Construction program, as well as the Driver's First initiative. 

The $145 million contract was awarded to the joint venture of Halmar - A. Servidone / B. Anthony.  Under this assignment, SJH is developing structural design and construction procedures for the demolition of the existing deck and the erection of precast deck panels for Spans 1,2 and 3 of Bridge 5.
