FLATIRON SECURES $70M CONTRACT TO CONSTRUCT NEW LAKE CHAMPLAIN BRIDGE PROJECT
FLAT IRON USES POSEIDON II BARGES ON THE LAKE CHAMPLAIN PROJECT.
(Longmont, Colo.) June 8, 2010 – Flatiron, one of the nation’s largest transportation and infrastructure contractors, was awarded a $69.6 million contract by the New York State Department of Transportation to construct a bridge that will connect Crown Point, N.Y., and Chimney Point, Vt. Flatiron was the low bidder of eight contractors vying for the contract. The project is the company’s first in New York.
The original 80-year-old bridge was demolished in December because inspections deemed it unsafe. The new bridge, spanning 2,200 feet over a narrow stretch of southern Lake Champlain, will be constructed with conventional steel girder approaches and a modified network tied-arch main span. The main span will be assembled on land and then floated and hoisted into position.
Flatiron is using the Poseidon II 40′ x 10′ x 7′ & 20′ x 10′ x 7′ barges on this project. You can view more pictures from the project by going to the Poseidon II Job Site Gallery.
