Road infrastructure is an important consideration for every municipality, but in Jacksonville, Fla., the deteriorating condition of one of the main thoroughfares reached crisis status earlier this decade. The crumbling of an elevated section of I-95 through the southern part of downtown prompted state and city officials to undertake the largest design/build project in the district’s history in 2013.

By Chris Petersen

Dealing with wastewater is one of civilization’s oldest problems, and it continues to be a major concern in growing municipalities where outdated infrastructure and rising demands call for big solutions. For example, consider the work being done under the streets of Indianapolis right now, as Citizens Water undertakes its largest sewer overflow project to date, the $1.6 billion Long Term Control Plan. Expected to be completed by 2025, the completed project will meet federal requirements to curb the overflow of raw sewage into local rivers and streams by building a 25-mile combined sewer overflow collection system consisting of numerous tunnels and pumping stations.

By Russ Gager

Relief is on the way for drivers delayed on Route 7 by the old Wittpenn vertical lift bridge that was built over the Hackensack River in Jersey City, N.J., in 1930. CCA Civil, a subsidiary of China Construction America (CCA), which focuses on the heavy construction market in the New York metropolitan area, is partnering with the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to build a new vertical lift bridge north of the existing bridge.

 The new bridge will provide for a minimum vertical clearance of 70 feet above the water in the closed position compared with the 35-foot height for the existing bridge. As a result, fewer openings of the new bridge are promised by the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
