Major Deegan Expressway Entrance Ramp
at West Fordham Road – Bronx, NY
This project required the widening of the existing NB entrance ramp to the Major Deegan Expressway at West Fordham Road to allow for improved safety of merging traffic.
This project required the installation of permanent drilled-in steel H-Pile and precast concrete wall lagging. In addition, 10,000 square feet of poured-in-place colored concrete simulated stone masonry wall was created using precisely positioned form liners that gave the appearance of a natural stone finish. Moreover, engineered precast highway slabs were installed at the entrance ramp to expedite the work and keep the ramp open at all times. As part of the project, architectural improvements were made to Fordham Landing Park including a new basketball court, benches, landscape pavers and trees.
