The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission recently announced the award of an engineering contract for construction management and constructability review services associated with the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project.
The contract was approved by Commissioners at their February 29 for a not-to-exceed amount of $912,693.42. Under the contract, the engineering firm Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. of Lebanon, N.J. will be responsible for two key oversight functions in advance of the multi-faceted bridge project.
First, Greenman-Pedersen will provide construction management services for construction of noise abatement walls along eligible portions of the Pennsylvania I-95 approach to the Scudder Falls Bridge. This professional services work will involve a variety of oversight tasks, including establishing and monitoring the project schedule and construction progress, reviewing shop drawings, and administering invoicing and payments. Greenman-Pedersen also will provide the resident engineers who will supervise the field inspectors for the Pennsylvania noise wall installations.
Noise wall construction is not expected to begin along the I-95 approach in Lower Makefield, Bucks County until later in the spring. Tree clearing work is already underway in areas where noise walls have already been approved for installation. A specific start date for noise wall installation activities won’t be determined until the Commission completes a review of noise-reading data and awards a construction contract for the work.
