RT. 35 OVER CHEESEQUAKE CREEK BRIDGE REHAB, SAYREVILLE & OLD BRIDGE, NJ
The $25 million project replaced the bridge decks, sidewalks, railings and median on the 70-year-old structure. The deck joints and structural steel elements were repaired and the bridge was repainted. The out-dated electrical/mechanical systems on the movable bascule span were also rehabilitated and new safety barrier gates were installed.
NJDOT has designed the bridge rehabilitation to be accomplished in stages, working on one side of the bridge at a time. Removing live traffic from the side of the bridge being worked on facilitated faster and safer rehabilitation operations.
