popham road bridge update


The Village of Scarsdale has announced the Popham Road Bridge Stage 3 demolition is scheduled to commence Monday night, June 18, 2012 and continue until the end of July 2012. For safety reasons the demolition work is required to be performed at night between the hours of 9:00 pm and 5:00 am. The demolition work entails removing the last section (middle section) of the existing bridge which includes the concrete deck, concrete abutments, concrete footings and structural steel. The concrete will be removed with the use of drills, jack hammers and backhoes. The noise level will vary in intensity depending on the type of demolition being performed. The Village has directed the contractor, whenever possible, to perform the noisiest work at the beginning part of the night. Stage 3 is the last bridge construction stage while Stage 4 includes finishing punch list and administrative items. The Popham Road Bridge construction is anticipated to be finished by the end of December 2012 with punch list and administration items completed by February 2013.
