Stone Harbor 96th St bridge to open 11/22/16 with restrictions

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

The following is a press release issued by the County of Cape May on Tuesday evening, November 22nd:

STONE HARBOR, NJ –Stone Harbor Boulevard (CR657) Bridge over Great Channel, locally referred to as the “96th Street Bridge”, is scheduled to reopen to traffic this evening (November 22), after being closed since October 28th due to a large crack discovered in one of the main span girders. The bridge will also be able to open for marine vessels traversing the navigational channel under the bridge.

Michael Baker International, Inc. (Baker) of Hamilton, NJ, the County’s consultant overseeing the inspection of the bridge and development of the repair details for the cracked girder, has recommended the bridge be load posted at 15 tons as a result of their further investigational and inspection of the movable span. All trucks and buses are to use Avalon Boulevard (County Road No. 601/Ocean Drive (County Road No. 619) to access Stone Harbor.

The main span of the bridge consist of two (2) movable leaves that are supported by two (2) build-up girders each. The movable span leaves open to allow for the passage of marine vessels under the bridge by the use of motors by pivoting about a bearing. The vertical crack occurred near this pivoting point in the one of the main girders.

Baker, who is under contract with NJ Department of Transportation (NJDOT) for the biennial inspections of county-owned bridge in Cape May County, was engaged by the County Freeholders to develop the repairs to the girder. The IEW Construction Group (IEW), a firm that has had the structural maintenance contract with NJDOT for numerous years, was brought in to perform the repairs. IEW worked multiple shifts and Saturdays to effectuate the repairs needed to reopen the bridge.

The main issue with the repairs was jacking the cracked girder back into position so that it could be strengthen by welding large steel plates onto the web of the girder. The jacking was accomplished through the assembly of a truss, taken from a “Bailey” type bridge, over the movable span. Additional repairs were required at the “toe-end” of the movable span leaf once the truss was disassembled.

The 96th Street Bridge was originally constructed in 1930 and is one of two movable bridges in the County’s inventory of bridges. The main span, called “Rall Type Bascule” is only one of its kind in New Jersey and it is believed that there is only six (6) of its kind constructed in the United States. As a result of this type of construction, the movable span is deemed to be of historical significance. In 1983-85, the approach spans of the bridge were replaced and the components of the main span were reconstructed. The County repainted the main span and had structural repairs made to the bridge in 1998. Some of the mechanical components of the main span were replaced in 1999.

Both Baker and IEW are working under “time and materials” agreements. The total cost of the repairs will be known sometime next month when each firm submit their invoice with the supporting documentation of their costs.

Baker is recommending additional repairs to avoid any further structural issues in the movable span and to eliminate the load posting of the bridge. This work is anticipated to be performed while maintaining traffic on the bridge and be completed before the summer season.

6/2/16 – Municipal Update: Atlantic City Electric – Peermont Substation Project

Atlantic City Electric – Peermont Substation Project

6/2/16 – Municipal Update

Atlantic City Electric crews continue to make progress in completing the Peermont Substation Project that will modernize and harden the electric system.  This work is necessary to continue to ensure safe and reliable electric service to residents in Avalon, Stone Harbor and the surrounding area and to help minimize outages during severe weather events.

Crews returned to 95th Street in Stone Harbor this week to restore and repair areas that have been impacted by construction.  This work will continue until the restoration efforts are complete.

A portion of the Horizontal Directional Drilling work on 95th Street in Stone Harbor has been completed. By the end of next week, crews will work seven days a week to complete the next step that requires pulling a cable under the Great Channel from Hallman Road in Middle Township to 95th Street in Stone Harbor, as well as pulling cable along 95th Street, past 3rd Avenue to the new riser structure.

This cable will connect the second source from the mainland to our new substation in Avalon.  The work to pull the cable will take approximately two weeks. Once the cable pull is complete, the majority of equipment will be removed and there will be minimal construction impact in this area moving forward.

After the cable is successfully pulled, crews will begin the process of splicing the cable together at the manhole located on 95th Street along with the installation of terminations and connection to the overhead circuit at the new riser structure just past 3rd Avenue.  This process is slated to begin the last week of June and barring any unforeseen circumstances, will take approximately three days to complete. Crews will work 24 hours daily and 95th Street will remain open for local traffic during that time.

It’s anticipated that our crews will complete all work on 95th Street in Stone Harbor by the end of June.

We thank our customers for their continued patience and understanding as we work to complete the final stages of this reliability improvement project.
