ROUTE 37 EASTBOUND MATHIS BRIDGE OVER THE BARNEGAT BAY REHABILITATION AND IMPROVEMENTS
Presented by: Rama Krishnagiri, PE; Rishi Rishindran, PE; Steve Esposito, PE; and George Zimmer, WSP USA
This presentation will discuss the design and construction aspects of the major rehabilitation of the approximately mile long viaduct carrying Eastbound NJ 37 over the Barnegat Bay. NJ 37 links the mainland to beach communities in Seaside Heights and is a major evacuation route. Three Eastbound lanes are carried by the 66-span, 60-year old movable bridge. The seasonal construction for this $60 Million rehabilitation includes one of NJ’s largest precast Exodermic decking undertakings, elastomeric and pot bearings, improved traffic lanes, movable bridge safety features, customized resistance barrier gates and warning gates, substructure repair and a major Electrical/Mechanical rehabilitation. The eastern 21 piers suffered major scour damage in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy in 2012, and Emergency scour retrofit measures were installed and are performing well.
