Precast Concrete Segmental Bridge Replacing 75 Year Old Bridge at NJ Shore

The new precast concrete segmental bridge is replacing a functionally-obsolete and structurally-deficient 75 year old double leaf bascule bridge. Rt. 36 is the main corridor to many of NJ's eastern beaches and the national park in Sandy Hook. The new bridge will increase the vertical clearance under the bridge to 65 feet above the water, eliminating the traffic problems previously posed by the existing draw bridge.
