I-90 is the main route to some of New York State's most spectacular natural landmarks, including Niagara Falls.
I-90 is one of the most important highways in Buffalo, NY - it's a key route to Niagara Falls, the Niagara River, and Lake Erie - and rehabilitation of this portion of the New York State Thruway is critical to the region's tourism economy. Work includes full depth shoulder widening with slope flattening and earthwork; installation of concrete pavement and asphalt pavement overlay; extension of drainage systems; relocation of fiber optic lines; and installation of guild rail and fences.
The project also includes installation of a concrete bridge deck overlay and substructure repairs at the 18 Mile Creek and Big Sisters Creek bridges.
Urban's construction inspection services include monitoring the contractor’s progress; providing reccomendations to maintain the schedule; and checking that all materials, work, and equipment comply with the contract documents.
A portion of work will occur at night, while lanes are closed. Crossovers, constructed at various locations, will enable safe use of the highway during construction. Other complex methods are also required to maintain highway traffic.
