Yonkers Finishes I-95 Project Early and $1M Under Budget
10/20/2022 - Yonkers Contracting Company recently completed the NYS Thruway Authority infrastructure improvement project on I-95 in Westchester County. The project was completed ahead of schedule and approximately $1 million under its original $19.9 million contract value.
The project included pavement resurfacing of more than nine lane miles of l-95 southbound, raising the vertical clearance of three bridges, and safety improvements. A lot of the work took place overnight to minimize impacts to drivers. The Thruway Authority worked closely with local communities throughout the project since three bridges on Old White Plains Road, West Street and Boston Post Road had to be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic during construction.
"Like our customers, the Thruway Authority knows that every dollar counts and every dollar saved matters," Thruway Authority Executive Director Matthew J. Driscoll said. "This project came in well under budget and is another example of our focus on making smart investments in our infrastructure while finding cost efficiencies at every turn. The millions of motorists that travel this stretch of the New England Thruway each year will experience long-term benefits for decades, including the increased clearance of the bridges that meet current highway standards."
