Baker picked for Pulaski Skyway scheme
Michael Baker Jr has won a two-year, US$8.0 million dollar contract for engineering work on the 80-year old Pulaski Skyway Bridge connecting Newark and Jersey City in the USA.
The project for New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) involves deck replacement and structural rehabilitation work on two structures.
The Pulaski Skyway is a key component of the metropolitan transportation network and acts as a major traffic corridor between New Jersey and New York. It crosses over both the Hackensack and Passaic rivers in New Jersey. The goal of the rehabilitation project is to rehabilitate the structure and address the existing structural deficiencies, make safety improvements, and achieve a life expectancy of at least 75 years before another major rehabilitation is necessary.
