Fort Pitt Boulevard

  • Location: Pittsburgh, PA
  • Owner: PennDOT, District 11
  • General Contractor: Brayman Construction Corporation
  • Estimated Value: $32.6 Million
  • Completion Date: December 2002

Accomplished under an aggressive schedule, this project involved the construction of a 1,900 LF 35-span prestressed concrete I-beam bridge and approach roadway within the City of Pittsburgh. The work included the reconstruction of overpass connections to Fort Pitt Boulevard, and construction of a new three-span bridge and ramps. In addition, Brayman also completed installation of 101- seven inch diameter micropiles to depths of 50 feet for the bridge abutments.  The final phase included the relocation of the Eastbound Fort Pitt Boulevard connection to the Smithfeld Street Bridge, and the construction of a new five span-Ramp B bridge connecting the Smithfeld Street bridge onto Grant Street.

Brayman earned a $1.6 million incentive compensation bonus by aggressively bidding the project, completing the work in eight months, and returning the highly traveled roadway back to the public 15 days ahead of Brayman’s predicted schedule; and in retrospect completing the three phases of this project three, five, and six months ahead of Penn DOT’s initial schedule.
