New York, NY
Historic icons in New York City, the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges provide transportation across the East River for hundreds of thousands of commuters daily. Public safety on these significant passageways is of utmost importance.
Conti completed the security upgrades for each bridge to meet their unique designs. This included providing a uniform appearance and maintaining a K-12 security rating to make them safer for pedestrians and drivers alike.
Security upgrades included custom designed and fabricated fixed bollards, retractable electric bollards between the three bridges and stainless steel ornamental fencing, all of which serve as access control and hazard mitigation. The team worked diligently to maintain the sites’ aesthetics while making these upgrades structurally sound.
Conti executed the project in nine completely different work areas around the three bridges, each with its own unique and specific work hours, in very busy pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Additionally, some sites featured very tight work areas and traffic requiring Conti to work during evening hours.
Conti’s work helped upgrade the security of America’s historical landmarks and New York City’s critical infrastructure.
Conti mobilized 100% of project crews within four days to clear 174,000 tons of hurricane waterway debris along the Atlantic Coast.
Conti’s LEED Silver qualified facility provided more than $1.5 million in cost savings for the New Jersey Department of Military and Veteran Affairs.
