SYLMAR, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 4, 2012--
Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC), a leading civil and building
construction company, today announced that its Civil Group has been
awarded a $235 million contract by the New York Metropolitan
Transportation Authority (MTA) Bridges and Tunnels for the Upper Level
Deck Replacement project at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York.
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge that
connects the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City. It
was the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time of its
completion in 1964. Today, it has the ninth longest main span in the
world, and is still the longest bridge span in the Americas.
The project involves the replacement of the existing concrete-filled
steel grid deck at the upper level with a new steel orthotropic deck.
Work is expected to be completed in four main stages and includes the
installation of new finger joints, a bridge barrier, bridge drainage
system, orthotropic deck waterproofing, Rosphalt asphalt overlay, new
sign structures, and upper and lower deck roadway lighting.
“Tutor Perini has a long history of providing bridge and highway
construction services in support of the country’s transportation
infrastructure. We are pleased to provide our services to rehabilitate
the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, a critical component of New York’s
transportation system,” said Jack Frost, Chief Executive Officer of
Tutor Perini’s Civil Group.
The project is expected to begin in early 2013 with final completion
anticipated by the end of 2017.
