Back in November 2016, The Fort Miller Co., Inc. produced and delivered a 90-foot long x 15-foot wide prefabricated bridge unit (PBU) to Exit 53 of the New York State Thruway in Buffalo, NY. Fabricated in Fort Miller’s Easton, NY facility, the new bridge traveled over 300 miles to its final destination; a bridge ramp over Interstate-90. The existing bridge segment had been heavily damaged a few months earlier. Due to traffic volumes on the bridge and its close vicinity to the mainline Thruway, the removal and replacement had to be completed in a single weekend. Union Concrete and Construction Corporation (UCC) was the general contractor responsible for all activities; including but not limited to closing traffic, removing the 108-ton damaged bridge segment, setting the new 95-ton precast bridge unit, and getting traffic open to the public. Congratulations to the entire project team who successfully performed all activities over the course of 44 short hours!: Union Concrete and Construction, Contour Steel, Inc., CHA Constuling, and LaBella Associates.
