Metro-North Train Station

Client Served: Government

Loureiro was the concrete subcontractor for the construction of a nearly 300 foot long new roadway bridge in Fairfield, CT. The two span bridge was part of a new commuter railroad station and parking facilities. The northern span was across a local roadway and the southern span was over four Metro-North railroad tracks. The center support consists of eight circular columns. Pedestrian sidewalks were constructed on both sides of the 60 foot wide roadway.

Highlights

  • Abutments were formed using gang forming systems and flying the panels between concrete placements.
  • Over 1,700 CY of concrete was formed, placed, stripped and rubbed for the abutment footings and stem walls.
  • Concrete deck was designed to be placed in one continuous operation beginning over the center columns and proceeding north and south simultaneously. Loureiro assembled two full crews to place nearly 600 CY of concrete in one day.
  • A portion of the work over the railroad tracks was performed at night. Track outages were required for the installation of the overhang brackets for the deck and parapet form work.
