Conti has been honored by the Concrete Industry Board with an Award of Merit for their concrete work on the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge in Bronx, New York. The concrete design and construction on the project comprised over 6.6 million pounds of uncoated, galvanized and epoxy coated reinforcing steel and over 23,000 cubic yards of structural concrete and high performance concrete. The total project value is over $200 million.
“Being at the forefront on innovation and technology is what we strive for at Conti,” said Gerard Maurer, Project Manager, “We are honored to accept this award for the concrete work on our project.”
Reconstruction of the bridge approach comprised of a phased replacement of the entire structure with the new portion constructed under the existing superstructure. The concrete component included steel reinforced high performance concrete with complex geometry decoratively arched substructure piers along with a superstructure deck that transitions from a super-elevated section into a traditionally sloped main span.
Conti will be accepting the award at the 51st Annual Roger H. Corbetta Award for Quality Concrete event on Wednesday, November 7th at the Marina del Rey in the Bronx. The Concrete Industry Board of New York City fosters the highest quality design and construction of concrete structures through education, exchange and debate. They are dedicated to the practice of the highest professional ethical standards in all elements of the concrete construction industry.
