HIGHWAYS & BRIDGES
Founded as an earthwork contractor, Yonkers built many original segments of the highways within the tri-state region. Through the years, Yonkers has completed numerous highway and bridge rehabilitation and improvement projects – from full-depth pavement rehabilitations to interstate interchange reconstruction, highway realignments, and bridge reconstruction and replacements.
Infrastructure improvements in the northeast requires handling high volumes of traffic within a dense and uniquely urban environment, particularly in NYC. These are challenges Yonkers has successfully handled using various combinations of complex staging schemes, work zone traffic control, movable barriers, and innovative construction methods.
Over the past decade, Yonkers has re-built a significant portion of the I-287 corridor through Westchester County including nineteen bridge structures, rehabilitated major bridges, installed orthotropic deck panels on long-span bridges, implemented the Thruway’s first highway speed EZ Pass lanes, and completed the first “sliding bridge” project for NYSDOT to replace two bridges on Interstate 84 to minimize impact and accelerate project delivery.
