What I Build
The paving plan I worked on with our Project Engineer required a transfer machine and paver to operate inside our workzone during the day, saving us time and money from otherwise performing the operation at night.
Bridge expansions joints are highly technical and require precision work to ensure that the mechanics of the finger joint work properly. In this photo, I oversaw a crew installing stiffening angles for a new support beam in the expansion joint.
Part of the WPS required welders to gouge the joint and apply a new weld on top. This procedure meant understanding how the gouger worked and the quality assurance of gouging practices.
Submerged Arc Welding
Being the engineer on welding operations meant knowing how submerged arc welding worked and the functionality of the tractor (machine).
UT Testing and Welding
Aside from tracking welding production, I also worked closely with QA/QC and welding inspectors to ensure the integrity of all joint welds on the Verrazano Bridge.
To protect motorists from the open hole, I worked with engineers to devise a plan to brace the temporary concrete barriers using super studs.
Box Beam Erection
The contract proposed the reconstruction of 3 overpass bridges on the Staten Island Expressway, all of which were built using pre-cast, pre-stressed concrete box beams. Shown in the photo is the erection operation of these beams.
This photo shows most of the final roadway on the Staten Island Expressway. About one-third of the highway consists of final grade PCC pavement.
Noise Wall Erection at SIE
Contract plans required noise walls to be erected at select locations along the Staten Island Expressway. Here, I oversaw a subcontractor performing the operation.
Roadbase Concrete Pours on SIE
Part of my responsibilities as field engineer on the Staten Island Expressway project was to prepare, quantify, and manage concrete operations. In this photo, laborers pour concrete roadbase on the Expressway.
Finger Joint Subfloor Beam Erection
I ran a nighttime operation to set and install 4 subfloor beams at the Verrazano Bridge finger (expansion) joints that would eventually serve as pedestals for the finger plates.
