Project Description

I-87 Exit 4 Bridge Replacement

Town of Colonie, Albany County, New York

Creighton Manning provided Construction Inspection Services on the Exit 4 bridge replacement project. The two highway bridges that carry six lanes of the Adirondack Northway (Interstate 87) over Albany-Shaker Road in the Town of Colonie, NY were built as part of the original Northway construction in 1959 and were at the end of their useful life. The existing structures were three-span, simply-supported, steel multi-stringer bridges with structural lengths of 162 feet. New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) completed the final design of the $22.3 million project to replace the I-87 Exit 4 bridges with single span steel girder bridges with precast concrete decks. Creighton Manning provided the Chief Inspector, Office Engineer, two senior inspectors, level II inspectors, and two TCIs.

This project was awarded a 2016 ACEC New York Silver Award in the Structural Systems Category.
