RIVERDALE, NJ — EVS Metal, Inc, a leader in full-service sheet metal fabrication, machining and integration, is pleased to announce it has been awarded a manufacturing contract for the New NY Bridge project. This multi-billion dollar design-build contract for the New York State Thruway Authority being designed and built by Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC consists of two separate 3.1 mile long spans, one for each direction of travel, and is expected to be completed in several different stages through 2018.
"It's incredibly gratifying to be awarded a contract that will make a difference so close to home," said Joe Amico, Vice President and Co-Founder of EVS. "The Tappan Zee regularly carries many EVS employees and customers; having the chance to contribute to our community by being a part of a project like this is always exciting for our company."
EVS Metal's contribution to the bridge's construction will be in the form of metal foam clips, which are an integral part of the finished bridge's roadbed. These metal clips lay across girders, holding foam in place so precast decking may be laid on top.
The Tappan Zee is an important connection point for the New York City metropolitan area; the bridge spans the Hudson River, linking Rockland and Westchester Counties. Originally opened in 1955, it currently supports an average of 138,000 vehicles per day, far exceeding the amount it was designed to carry. The new bridge is designed to serve more vehicles with additional lanes, and includes a pedestrian and bicycle path as well as a proposed mass-transit system. When it opens, it will be the longest and most complex bridge crossing in the New York State Thruway System.
