Mud Tavern Road over Dwaar Kill

Shawangunk, NY

HVEA designed and oversaw the construction of this project that replaced a jack arch bridge in the Town of Shawangunk. As a federal aid local project, the project was subject to the rigorous oversight requirements mandated by the NYSDOT Local Projects Unit.

In order to simplify construction, the new bridge was designed and constructed behind the existing abutments.  The existing abutments were left in place to act as cofferdams during construction and as permanent scour protection.  An integral abutment was designed to minimize excavation and concrete.  This design proved both economical and simple to construct.

This project was completed on time and under budget.

This project included:

  • Raised profile with new horizontal alignment
  • Prestressed concrete superstructure with integral abutments
  • Endangered species study
  • ROW takings
  • Utility relocation
  • Construction inspection services
