Hayduk Engineering is currently providing full-time construction inspection services for the $136 million reconstruction of I-95 from Port Chester to the Connecticut State Line. The 15 mile section of the New England Thruway (I-95) carries traffic from New York City to the Connecticut border. Over the past decades, 14 miles of the highway in the Bronx, Pelham, New Rochelle, Mamaroneck, Harrison and Rye have been reconstructed. This project will complete the reconstruction of the “last mile,” improve motorists’ experience and increase the safety along this section of I-95. The project spans approximately one mile and contains a six ramp interchange system with the Cross Westchester Expressway (I-287) and Midland Avenue in the City of Rye and Village of Port Chester in Westchester County. It also includes replacement of the Cross Westchester Expressway ramp bridge and the Grace Church Street bridge over the Thruway, and resurfacing of the Byram River bridge.
The main components of the project includes:
- Replacement of Grace Church Street bridge
- Replacement and realignment of the I-287 eastbound to I-95 northbound ramp bridge
- Resurfacing of the Byram River bridge
- Realignment of ramp from Midland Avenue to connect directly to I-95 northbound
- Widening of I-95 southbound to provide a two-lane exit ramp to I-287 westbound
- Improvements to the I-95 northbound/Midland Avenue interchange
- Substructure Repairs to the Boston Post Road bridge, Purchase Street bridge, and the Blind Brook culvert
- Repaving of Playland Parkway entrance and exit ramps
Hayduk Engineering’s responsibilities include construction inspection, record keeping, review of shop drawings and submittals, and construction materials testing. The project is currently entering its third year of construction and is anticipated to be completed in 2021.
