Lake Drive Bridge Replacement over Quassaick Creek

Newburgh, NY

HVEA was selected to perform design services for the replacement of the existing twin metal arch culvert bridge over the Quassaick Creek with a single span bridge. The existing structure exhibited an inefficient hydraulic opening which contributed to the flooding issues experienced in this area.  In addition, scour protection is also key as the creek flow can often increase rapidly during storm events. HVEA has designed several scour protection techniques including permanent steel sheeting, heavy stone fill and the use of concrete “Sta-Pods”.  The soil conditions will determine the best scour choice for this location.

This project is funded with federal funds and is being progressed under the oversight review of the NYSDOT Region 8 Local Projects Group.

This project includes:

  • Replacement of the existing twin metal arch culvert bridge
  • Hydraulic analysis
  • Scour Protection
  • Roadway drainage
  • Erosion Control Plan
  • Right-of-Way Acquisition
