Tutor Perini Awarded $235 Million Contract for Verrazano-Narrows Bridge
Upper Level Deck Replacement
SYLMAR, Calif. -- December 04, 2012
Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC), a leading civil and building
construction company, today announced that its Civil Group has been awarded a
$235 million contract by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority
(MTA) Bridges and Tunnels for the Upper Level Deck Replacement project at the
Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York.
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge that
connects the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City. It was
the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time of its completion in
1964. Today, it has the ninth longest main span in the world, and is still the
longest bridge span in the Americas.
The project involves the replacement of the existing concrete-filled steel
grid deck at the upper level with a new steel orthotropic deck. Work is
expected to be completed in four main stages and includes the installation of
new finger joints, a bridge barrier, bridge drainage system, orthotropic deck
waterproofing, Rosphalt asphalt overlay, new sign structures, and upper and
lower deck roadway lighting.
“Tutor Perini has a long history of providing bridge and highway construction
services in support of the country’s transportation infrastructure. We are
pleased to provide our services to rehabilitate the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge,
a critical component of New York’s transportation system,” said Jack Frost,
Chief Executive Officer of Tutor Perini’s Civil Group.
The project is expected to begin in early 2013 with final completion
anticipated by the end of 2017.
