The Kosciuszko Bridge (K-Bridge) (I-278, Brooklyn-Queens Expressway) over Newtown Creek in Brooklyn-Queens, New York City.
For the largest New York State Department of Transportation Design-Build contract ever awarded, Fort Miller fabricated (284) Main Span precast concrete bridge deck panels in addition to over 135,000 SF of the T-WALL® Retaining Wall (large block and small block) units with a special vertical ribbed formliner finish. As can be seen in the photos, the T-WALL® made up the abutments as the stems were integrated around the piles with no fit-up issues. We also provided precast concrete bridge components for the Morgan Avenue Bridge, which was made part of the overall K-Bridge project. The specifications for this project required a 100-year life span, which was achieved by utilizing stainless steel reinforcement and a 9,700-PSI high performance concrete mix.
