Stickel Bridge Elevator Replacement

Newark, Essex Co., Harrison, Hudson Co., NJ

Agate Construction has been awarded the NJDOT William A. Stickel Bridge Elevator Replacement Contract. The movable bridge spans the Hackensack river between Newark and Harrison New Jersey. The project includes the complete removal of the existing drum and cable elevators along with their caged enclosures. The two new elevators will be state of the art industrial Alimak Elevators with new communication facilities, fire and smoke detection systems and a completely enclosed weather protected tower shaft. The new shaft will be constructed using steel angles, channels, bent plates and enclosed with FRP translucent panels. New lighting and electrical facilities will enhance the elevators. The project is expected to be completed by Fall of 2023.
