The time lapse video below showcases Gannett Fleming’s replacement of U.S. Routes 1, 9, and 46 Bridge over Jones Road in Fort Lee, New Jersey. The company used accelerated bridge replacement to complete the replacement of the 60-foot-long, single-span, 89-year-old bridge under budget and ahead of schedule. The bridge had been classified as structurally deficient due to its poor deck condition.
The $4.3 million project was part of the New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) mission to update deteriorating infrastructure and improve motorist safety. Gannett Fleming worked with J. Fletcher Creamer & Son/Joseph M. Sanzari to design the replacement for the bridge’s superstructure.
