Traffic Changes

Deck Replacement of Metropolitan Avenue and Fresh Pond Roadover the L.I.R.R.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The bridge over the L.I.R.R. at the intersection of Metropolitan Avenue and Fresh Pond Road was constructed in 1915 by the Long Island Rail Road. It is the result of New York State ordering the removal of the grade crossing at this location for safety reasons, since the rail tracks were at ground level. Over the course of the bridge’s 101 year lifespan, it has received numerous overlays of asphalt and steel plates have been installed as mitigation steps to remedy the deterioration of the deck of the bridge.

PROJECT SCOPE

The work will include:

• Bridge deck removal and replacement

• Approach slab removal and replacement

• Superstructure steel framing repairs

• Restricted parking on Metropolitan Avenue and Fresh Pond Road

• New temporary pedestrian sidewalk from Metropolitan Avenue to Fresh Pond Road
