Replace Westbrook Bridge over Wanaque Reservoir
This heavy civil construction project involved the replacement of West Brook Road Bridge over the Wanaque Reservoir. Northeast Remsco constructed 10 foot diameter drilled shafts 160 feet deep along with a new 700 foot continuous span structure in water up to 70 feet deep. We successfully placed 458 cubic yards of self-consolidating concrete inside the largest diameter drilled shaft in New Jersey.

Garden State Parkway Shoulder Restoration
This heavy civil construction project involved the restoration and widening of shoulders and mainline pavement of the Garden State Parkway. We provided 12 foot wide left and right shoulders and 12 foot wide travel
lanes, incorporating current NJTA standards for: pavement superelevation and transitions; roadside treatments; and roadside clear zones. The project also included the replacement of 3 bridges, the widening and redecking of 7 existing bridges, 2 retaining walls, the extension of existing culverts, construction of 13 new permanent sign structures, drainage and utility improvements, 14 storm water management basins, and new signing and lighting.

Garden State Parkway Bridge Deck Reconstruction
This heavy civil construction project was for the bridge deck reconstruction for milepost 121 to 131 on the Garden State Parkway. The Garden State Parkway Bridge construction project involved superstructure replacement of the bridge deck and parapets , substructure repairs, and other miscellaneous work on six bridges. Four of the six bridge decks were replaced in stages to mitigate the inconvenience to the travelling public. The two remaining bridges were replaced using the Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) technique. The ABC , or hyper-builds consisted of demolishing the existing bridge deck and replacing with a prefabricated, precast concrete bridge deck units. During the hyper-builds, traffic was shifted to the local lanes on the GSP to the express lanes. The local lanes were then shut down for 56 hours from Friday night at 11:00 pm then re-opened at 5:00 am Monday morning before the rush hour. This technique was used on two bridges over 6 different weekends.

Bass River Parkway Bridge
Heavy civil construction consisted of a 6 span precast , prestressed, post tensioned girder bridge. The foundations for all piers were precast, prestressed concrete piles up to 100’ in length supporting cast in place fittings. The longest spans of the bridge were up to 200’ long over the Bass River. The approaches to the new bridge were made possible with the use of MSE walls. The project also included the complete rehabilitation of the existing Bass River Bridge. The rehabilitation included deck removal, structural steel replacement of the bridge stringers, lead abatement and painting of the complete structure.

Bridge Rehabilitation and Concrete Repair Morristown Line Lower Hack Bridge
This heavy civil construction project involved Major Structural Steel repair with a lift span bridge as well as deck repair and waterproofing while maintaining electrified railroad traffic. We removed and replaced existing ballast and waterproofing with new spray applied waterproofing, drainage and protection boards on the concrete viaduct approaches to the structural steel lift span. Crack and spall repairs were completed on the underneath of the viaduct and all pier caps and stems. Structural steel repairs were completed to the structural steel lift span on floor beams, girders, gusset plates, angles, and cross braces. Rivets were removed and replaced with high strength bolts. Repairs were completed with active train traffic accomplished by temporary jacking and shoring of floor beams with bracing.
