Since its founding Judlau has been active in bridge reconstruction, rehabilitation and new construction. The company has repeatedly introduced significant engineering innovations such as pre-fabricated structures that save time and benefit both the owner and contractor. Judlau’s project management teams use their time-tested experience to thoroughly analyze the challenges at hand, reconfigure staging if necessary, and successfully deliver projects on time and within budget.
Working throughout the New York metropolitan area, Judlau has participated in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of more than 40 steel and concrete bridges – over local thoroughfares and major highways, and across railroad tracks and busy parkways.
For example, Judlau was the General Contractor for the lower level deck replacement at the Henry Hudson Bridge, which connects the west side of Manhattan with the Bronx over the Harlem River. The overall scope of the project involved replacing the entire lower-level four-lane existing bridge deck with new prefabricated steel grid deck panels, and also making the necessary structural steel repairs to the steel arch superstructure. Indeed, Judlau has proved worthy of this significant project, hailed by the MTA facility engineer as “the most ambitious, complicated, and challenging construction job ever undertaken at this facility.”
Previously, Judlau worked on the reconstruction of three bridges in the Bronx a 36-month project spread out over three bridge locations, all within a one-mile radius of each other, involving three major intersecting highways (I-95, I-295 and I-695). Key improvements and benefits included a complete realignment and replacement of the I-95 Bridge, correcting alignment deficiencies, and extending the service life of the Randall Avenue bridge decks by 30 years.
Judlau’s other bridge projects include the East Gun Hill Road Bridge over New York City Transit (NYCT), which was completed in record time by utilizing temporary bridges in the approach areas and working beneath these structures to build new abutments, while maintaining traffic flow.
Judlau is committed to excellence, safety, dependability, and on time performances on all its bridge renovation and revitalization projects wherever we are called upon to maintain America’s vitally important infrastructure.
