PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Built in 1932, the Pulaski Skyway serves as a vital link between New Jersey and New York City. Because it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the skyway’s unique design features must be carefully preserved.

The elevated steel bridge extends about 3.5 miles, with two main river-crossing spans of 550 feet each over the Passaic and Hackensack rivers. The skyway has two 11-foot lanes in each direction with no shoulders and carries about 74,000 vehicles daily. Because of its age and deterioration, the iconic structure requires extensive repairs.

CCA was awarded the Pulaski Skyway Contract #3 project in June 2013 and subsequently won Contract #4 as the project’s general contractor in April 2014. The work entails demolishing and replacing the entire deck of both the northbound and southbound lanes with precast concrete deck panels, as well as installing new stringers, deck joints, cast-in-place curbs, lighting, drainage, etc. After CCA completes the two northbound lanes in Contract #3 in 2016, traffic was switched from the southbound to the northbound lanes. To protect the public and the workers, a shielding system, enclosing 3.5 miles of lanes, is being used to prevent workers and debris from falling. Once completed, the temporary shielding encompassing the entire length of the bridge will be removed.

CCA is working with NJDOT, local agencies and communities to create a comprehensive, in-depth plan to maintain the tight schedule and minimize the impact to traffic.
