Reducing costly infrastructure

Ongoing congestion and safety issues at I-690 and Teall Avenue, along with aging infrastructure, have had a negative impact on mobility and accessibility for people living in Syracuse. That’s where our team came in.

To address the safety and congestion issues, we eliminated a 1500-foot-long viaduct and replaced it with a 70-foot standard bridge and aesthetic retaining walls at Beech Street, as well as replacing the Teall Avenue Bridge with a wider structure. The Teall Avenue interchange and portions of the highway were reconstructed to add capacity, remove non-standard conditions, improve safety and pedestrian access, and enhance aesthetics.  To minimize disruption, the schedule was very tight. 

From our expertise on design/build projects, we knew that the key to success is early team collaboration, depth of resources, and expertise in establishing work zones. We developed nearly complete highway design before even being awarded the job, so that we moved very quickly to finalize design. Our in-house team designed all work on the expressway, except the bridges, including highway, retaining wall, ramps, drainage, and lighting.  

Now complete, the community can enjoy improved safety from geometric and lighting improvements, as well as aesthetic enhancements in the new mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls.
