Project is Located:

Cohoes, Albany County


Project Description:

The City of Cohoes is planning to replace the existing Bridge Avenue bridge (constructed in 1926) over the Fifth Branch of the Mohawk River to VanSchaick Island. The existing bridge is a concrete deck arch bridge, and the new bridge will be a steel multi-girder bridge. This portion of the Mohawk River has a Class and Standard of "C" and is navigable.

As part of the project, a 12-inch water main located below the sidewalk, and 6-inch sewer line located along the south fascia will be replaced with a new insulated 12-inch ductile pipe and 8-inch sewer line, respectively. The bridge construction will result in approximately 637 cubic meters (833 cubic yards) of permanent fill below the ordinary high water mark (OHWM) of the Mohawk River. There will also be 3,258 cubic meters (4,261 cubic yards) / 1,593 square meters (17,146 square feet) of temporary impact below OHWM to facilitate the construction of a causeway and temporary bridge in the Mohawk River.

The temporary causeway will provide access for construction equipment and the temporary bridge will be to carry utilities. Pollution control will include cofferdams at the pier and abutment locations to allow for dewatering. Turbidity curtains will be installed to prevent sediment from migrating downstream of the work area.
