Commissioned by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Gilmartin Street Bridge project began at the end of January 2007. With traffic being detoured around the work site Leeward had the opportunity to operate uninterrupted while removing the existing structure and erecting its replacement. As per the specifications, the main focus of this job was to install a 70′ 6″” one-span bridge, all while taking the proper measures to avoid polluting the Lackawanna River below. Also incorporated on the item schedule was to reconstruct and tie-in to the existing stone retaining wall. Subsurface components included water and gas facilities and various drainage pipes. Superficial treatments to the project area included 100 square yards of sidewalk, 214 linear feet of curbing, pavement markings, and final landscaping.
