Passaic County, NJ officials are replacing the West Brook Road Bridge which connects the boroughs of Ringwood and Wanaque, separated by the Wanaque Reservoir. With $28.7 million in federal aid funding, the project is slated for completion in 2017. Construction of the new structure will begin this summer.

The existing bridge, built in 1926, is a 7-span, simply supported concrete T-girder bridge cast monolithically with a reinforced concrete deck. It is being replaced by a 3-span, continuous variable depth steel plate girder structure, approximately 650 ft long, with a reinforced concrete deck.  The bridge profile will be set to provide a minimum of 6 feet of vertical clearance over the 100-year pool elevation.

POSEIDON® P10 BARGES IN CHICAGO!

May 20th, 2015

®POSEIDON BARGE MAKES A SPLASH IN CHICAGO

Poseidon® Barge, Fort Wayne, IN is playing a prominent role in the Chicago downtown improvements.  Chicago Steel approached Poseidon with the challenge of floating their Manitowoc 888 Ringer Crane on the Chicago River.  Chicago Steel is subcontracted by Clark Construction.

Clark was contracted to build the 54 story, 1.2 million square feet, 150 North Riverside Project, designed by Goettsch Partners, Inc based in Chicago. The new building is sandwiched between the West Lake Street and West Randolph Street bridges over the Chicago River in downtown Chicago.Poseidon Splash Pic 1

The project parameters required that the crane needed to lift 33 tons using a 300 foot boom floating from a platform on the river.  The Chicago River has heavy commercial barge & recreational craft traffic requiring that half of the river remain open.  This requirement restricted the size of the crane platform adding another challenge to the project.  In addition, the crane and platform had to meet strict railroad safety parameters requiring a larger crane and lift capacity for the project.  The North Riverside building is being constructed over seven active commuter & Amtrak rail lines.  Chicago Steel & Clark Construction is using the crane to construct the lower floors of the building.  After completion of the lower floors, tower cranes will be assemble to complete the building.
