Bertram Avenue

Staten Island, NY

The Bertram Avenue project included the installation of over 12,500 linear feet of sanitary sewer and storm water drainage piping including a storm water outfall into the West Reach Raritan Bay. The project included a sunken caisson shaft about 80 feet deep, a 1,100 linear foot microtunnel drive and a 450 linear foot microtunnel drive. The 450-foot microtunnel drive was successfully retrieved into a live interceptor sewer manhole on Hylan Boulevard (one of Staten Island’s major highways) with the use of self-performed permeation grouting as a means of groundwater cutoff. The project was completed with an achievement award from the NYC DDC where there were “zero-deviations and no punch list”, a first for the NYC DDC.

Goethals Bridge Replacement Wetland Mitigation

Staten Island, NY

The Goethals Bridge Replacement Wetland Mitigation project involved the restoration of 10.5 acres of low marsh, 2.5 acres of high marsh and 7.9 acres of scrub-shrub. Project consisted of installation of erosion and sediment control measures, clearing, grubbing, excavation, disposal, grading, fill placement, planting with native salt marsh vegetation and maintenance and monitoring upon completion of construction and related incidental work. Complexities included tidal creek crossings, tidal marsh restoration, unconsolidated substrates, highly organic soils, invasive plants and herbivory predator issue. The project was characterized by its aggressive completion schedule of slightly over 1 year during which JRCRUZ had moved close to 100,000 tons of material and planted over 300,000 native plants.
