Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project
The $500-million bridge connects New Jersey to Pennsylvania and the new span is being built next to the Interstate-95 Bridge for the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission. When the new bridge is finished, the old bridge will be demolished and a second span constructed in its place.
McCrossin Foundations was subcontracted to drill the foundations for each of the piers on the Main River Bridge, as well as driven pile, miscellaneous SOE work, and drilled shafts for land structures. The work on the Main River Bridge consists of 760-each 60-inch diameter drilled shafts that range in lengths up to 40 feet. The driven piling work consists of h-piles which range in lengths of 40 to 70 feet for the construction of the abutments of the Main River Bridge. The miscellaneous SOE work consists of tieback anchors and soldier pile walls.
