Contractor for Moses Wheeler Bridge Expects Completion One Year Early

For more Display/Classified Ads See Page 13

The old bridge lasted 51 years. The new one will last twice that long. General Contractors Walsh-PCL Joint Venture II has begun Phase Two of the Moses Wheeler Bridge Project, a 1.5-mi. (2.4 km) steel marvel to replace the one that connects the towns of Milford and Stratford, Conn. crossing over the Housatonic River. Begun in August 2009 and originally planned with an Oct. 31, 2017 completion date, the new bridge timetable has been revised by WPCL II to Aug. 31, 2016. Along with its protracted schedule, the estimated $320 million project will come in some $40 million under Connecticut Department of Rotator at pier six. Transportation (ConnDOT) projections, something almost unheard of in major bridge construction work in this century. Moses Wheeler — who emigrated from England in 1638 and moved to Stratford in the 1640s — operated a simple ferry across the river through the 1670s. It would be impossible for him to imagine that a huge manmade bridge would be built to span that same waterway. He would be mystified to find out it was named after him. He would be incredulous at knowing the one built first in 1958 would eventually carry 130,000 vehicles per day. According to James J. Pelletier, Jr., a project engineer at ConnDOT, The Moses-Wheeler Bridge consists of, in its main spans: girder/floorbeam/stringer approaches: With multi-girder 4-inch bituminous wearing surface over a 7.25in. (18.4 cm), reinforced concrete deck. “The bridge is set up with two primary carrying beams,” said Pelletier. There are two separate bridge structures. The

current bridge has two lanes in each direction, north and south. The two main girders have supplemented smaller girders running through the middle of the structure. The project is actually two projects in one. According to Pelletier, The Foundations Project was completed in November 2011 by O&G Industries of Torrington, Conn. The current Superstructure Project (the steel work itself attached to the foundations) was started on Aug. 22, 2011 by a joint venture of Walsh and PCL. The total approximate cost of both projects is about $320 million, Pelletier added, but, “Direct construction cost will amount to approximately $240 million,” he said. There are many subcontractors on the bridge, Pelletier added. The primary subcontractors on the Foundations see BrIDgE page 6

Contract included Raito Inc., of Massachusetts (with a parent company in Japan), and K&W Excavating of Connecticut. “The Superstructure Contract is a joint venture that includes Walsh Construction and PCL. Structal Steel (of Canada and New England) is providing the structural steel components,” said Pelletier. “We are supplying the three plate girder and diagphragms from our Claremont, N.H., plant, starting March 1, 2102 for phase 1...Over the next two years for the balance of the project. The project was awarded as a lump sum contract,” said Tariq Rashdi of Structal Steel. Some 12,000 tons of steel will be taken to Connecticut, with the girders delivered to the job site and erected by the contractor (WalshPCL JV team). All the steel was made in the United States. Other subs on the project include; KTM Electrical, Lintec LLC, The Quaker Corp, O&G Industries and Omega. The project is currently in the first year of Phase II of the Superstructure Contract, Stage 1 Construction, about mid-project overall, given its seven-year estimated time frame from 2009 to 2016. “We are currently both on time and on budget. The bid for the Superstructure Contract came in approximately $40 million under the State’s estimate,” said a proud

The state is managing the construction efforts with direct oversight performed by the consulting firms of HNTB Corporation and AECOM Technologies, who provide consulting engineers and inspecting staff. Approximately 24.2 million lbs. (11 million kg) of structural steel will be erected, with some 136,686 tons (124,000 t) of asphalt to go along with 37, 930 cu. yds.

used. The new bridge is essentially being built in the footprint of the existing bridge. The main structure, Bridge No. 135, the Moses Wheeler Bridge is approximately 2,950 ft. (900 m) long. The total length is 8,500 ft. (2,600 m) or approximately 1.5 mi. (2.4 km), and includes the replacement of Bridge No. 133 and 134, a new bridge over Naugatuck Ave., and improvements to Bridge No. 132. Pelletier mentioned several special concerns: • Low head room conditions which make it difficult to complete work out-of-stage • There is a recently installed

345kv utility line that runs adjacent to the project along the southern right-of-way • Metro North Railroad abuts the project directly to the north • Two shopping plazas owned by UB Properties that are directly adjacent to the State’s ROW limits to the north and southwest with a road that connects the two running under the main structure • There is an active 14-boat marina that exists under the shadow of the bridge with a restaurant • Raybestos had a plant that produced asbestos brakes within the footprint of proposed improvements and the site was used to offload coal

Milton CAT Hosts Hands-On Event to Explain Rebuilds You may have heard equipment owners talking about the rebuild option for machines — and you may have wondered what exactly is a rebuild? Even customers who have worked with a dealer for many years may not know what a rebuild entails, and what its benefits are. Let’s go a step further. How about witnessing a real-life rebuild and talking to other equipment owners who have already chosen that option? The recent Milford, Mass., rebuild event was led by the Milton CAT Massachusetts/Rhode Island product support team. It included a formal presentation and a tour of the service area where the work is being performed, followed by a meal. One of the attendees, Gil Lopes of G. Lopes Construction, is actually the owner of a 988F Cat that was undergoing a complete certified rebuild (CCR) at the time of the event. Several other attendees, including Ed Dailey, superintendent at Douglas, Mass., company Pyne Sand and Stone, as well as Lou Vergato and Len Paglio from Rhode Island Resource Recovery, commented that their companies have had several machines undergo a certified power train (CPT) rebuild. Guests took advantage of having access to equipment owners and operators who had personal experience with certified rebuilds, and asked for their opinions about the process. Parts and service sales representative tour leaders answered a variety of questions, from “How long does it take?”, “Can I add other work?”, “Do I really get a new machine ID number?” to “Why is a new operator seat always included?” What Exactly Is a Rebuild and How Long Does It Take? There are two types of certified rebuild program options offered by Milton CAT, a complete certified rebuild, or CCR, and a certified power train rebuild, or CPT. Usually a certified power train rebuild takes between four and six weeks and a complete certified rebuild, eight to ten. According to Milton CAT, a certified power train Parts and Service Sales Representative Scott Swann answers a rebuild will restore a machine to like-new perform- question.

A packed room listens to Milton CAT Product Support Manager Steve Washburn give an overview of the evening’s program.

It’s all here — what was taken apart, stripped down, pulled out and waiting to be replaced. Guests wandered around the service area touching, observing and learning from the experts and from each other.

ance, and Caterpillar, who has certified the rebuild, will issue a new guarantee and extended power train coverage. Approximately 3,000 parts are replaced in the process, including hoses, belts, seals, gaskets, bearings, knobs, wiring, switching and gauges. Roughly 7,000 parts and components are changed in a complete certified rebuild, but that’s not all — another crucial step included at this stage are engineering updates, incorporating improvements that have been made to the model since the original manufacturing. Finally, a new serial number identifies the machine and entitles the owner to a likenew warranty. Who Should Consider a Rebuild, and Why? A rebuild may be a good option for a large or medium size machine that has given many hours of top performance and fits requirements as far as size, power, features and operator friendliness. As an example, on a larger machine, an owner can save up to 75 percent of the cost of a new machine by having a certified power train rebuild, according to the manufacturer. The rebuild also is a good opportunity to easily and costeffectively perform any needed emissions upgrades. And when all is said and done, one of the biggest advantages may be that this is a machine your operators know and are comfortable with. see REBUILDS page 14

Mass. Highway Joint Dislodges, Creates Problems on I-290 WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) Massachusetts State Police said an expansion joint that became dislodged on a highway damaged several cars and caused a crash between a tractortrailer and a pickup truck. State police said Jan. 15 that the problem on westbound I290 in Worcester might have been caused by the cold weather in the region, where temperatures were in the single digits in some areas. Troopers received several calls after the expansion joint became dislodged and protruded upward into the path of several vehicles. It’s considered a contributing factor in the crash between the big rig and pickup truck, though information was not immediately released on the severity of that crash and whether injuries were reported. The state Department of Transportation repaired the joint Jan. 15 and reopened all traffic lanes. Keep Up With All the Industry News Subscribe to

Innovative Technology, Design Promise DISPLAY ADS/ 100-Year Lifespan for New Structure CLASSIFIEDS BRIDGE from page 6

Gowen Dishman and Leon Wolochuk; from O&G Industries, Mike Daley and Larry Doyon played significant roles in keeping the first project on time and budget; from the State of Connecticut, Steve DiGiovanna and Mark Rolfe; from the FHWA, Dave Nardone and Tim Snyder, who play an active role; and, although it is early, WPJV’s Don Gillas, Aaron Tubbs and Roger Martin who, Pelletier said, “Appear to understand what it takes to complete the task at hand.” But Moses Wheeler, like the ferryman whose name the bridge carries, has a very human element, also, beyond cold steel and cooling asphalt. “I would like to recognize William “Bill” Kennedy of STV Inc. Bill was a brilliant engineer who was probably the biggest asset to project development during the project’s design. He died of cancer just prior to the start of the Foundations Contract, working until his death,” said Pelletier. “Bill was

probably ‘The Man,’ who brought it from design to the construction stage. “He was a master of public relations with the community,” he added. “He had an uncanny ability to understand things and to paint a picture to the public to get them to understand it. He had a great way of diffusing and detailing to their satisfaction while standing in front of 100 unhappy people. He was a gentleman.” The bridge construction has differed from other structures in important ways, said Pelletier, thanks to innovation in equipment at its core. “Raito brought innovative technology to the state of Connecticut by introducing what they call the Supertop Rotator. This piece of equipment was capable of rotating a 10-foot diameter shaft into the ground and seating it into bedrock,” said Pelletier. “They also used another unique machine called a Reverse Circulating Drill (RCD). This RCD cored the three-meter deep rock socket. Through its drill string they

pumped water at a rate of up to 7,000 gallons per minute. This allowed them to flush the rock cuttings into weir tanks creating a closed loop system in this environmentally sensitive area.” The Superstructure Contract was bid with two alternates, a concrete segmental option and the steel option chosen by WPJV II. The three lowest bidders all bid the steel option. The two options were provided to create a more competitive bid environment, something learned by the state of Connecticut during another of its significant bridge projects. “Walsh hopes to finish it significantly ahead of schedule, but the way it is designed and made, the new bridge should last for a hundred years,” said Pelletier.

Experts Discuss Why, When Rebuilds Prove Best Option REBUILDS from page 8

When Is a Good Time to Look at the Rebuild Option? The answer is, when the first component is due for overhaul or major repair. Typically that will be the engine, and

there will be external symptoms such as loss of power, high oil consumption, water pump leaks, head gasket leak, skipping that will indicate that the time has come. The common temptation then is to just take care of the one or two components that are causing trouble, but this can actually have the opposite results. There are five systems in

an engine; exhaust; air intake; cooling; fuel; powertrain. When you take care of just one or two systems, the machine’s components will be “out of balance.” A lot more will be asked from the other systems that have not been fixed, and they will be much more likely to fail, according to the manufacturer.

Guests take a closer look at all the details involved in a CAT certified rebuild, including a new operator’s seat. The stripped-down 980C tells a story about the breadth and depth of a certified powertrain rebuild.

All that learning sure builds up an appetite.

Bridges, At-Risk Houses Top Report on Irene Recovery By Dave Gram ASSOCIATED PRESS

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Vermont needs to build longer bridges to make more room for swollen rivers and encourage the relocation of housing at risk of flooding, according to a report released Jan. 6 on the state’s recovery from the remnants of Hurricane Irene. Outgoing chief recovery officer Neale Lunderville said much work remains in putting Vermont back together after the storm and flooding it triggered in late August that killed six people and destroyed hundreds of miles of roads and 200 bridges. “There are still so many things we have to do all across the state ... to make our state stronger for the future,” said Lunderville, who is returning to the private sector and being replaced by Deputy Transportation Secretary Sue Minter. The 71-page report contained six sections covering aid to those affected by the storm, how to ensure recovery and resilience against future disasters, helping cities and towns recover, making sure the state’s roads, bridges and rail system are brought back to good shape, managing the environmental effects of the flooding and preparing for future disasters. “All recovery is local, but a partnership between Vermont and our local communities will ensure success as we rebuild,” said Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin. State officials mixed thanks and praise for recovery work with talk of lessons learned. More than 500 mi. of state roads were damaged with the last of them — a section of Route 107 in Stockbridge and Bethel — being reopened to traffic just recently. Among the shortcomings during and after the storm was Vermont’s spotty cellphone coverage, the report said. “Many Vermont towns lack adequate cellular coverage to facilitate communications when landlines are down,” it said. “While some communities relied on modern tech-

nology and Internet communications to reach their citizens, our most vulnerable populations may not always have access to this type of service.” Another lesson learned: Better plans need to be made for how to make the best use of volunteers after a disaster. “Having a place where volunteers, whether affiliated [with a group] or spontaneous, can go for information is critical to a successful response,” the report said. It said the Vermont Emergency Management, the state agency that coordinates disaster response, will hold a workshop in February on how to manage volunteers. A special council should be formed to coordinate the volunteer efforts that poured forth from Vermont’s colleges and universities, the report said. The report included a section written by Rich Tetreault, chief engineer with the state Agency of Transportation, who said Vermont should look at building longer bridges with their supports farther from the edges of rivers to accommodate flood waters. “Communities must also reassess their land-use patterns and ask such questions as: how close to the water is too close to build?” Tetreault wrote. The report also chronicled a breakdown in regulation of river alterations, as many landowners and towns went digging for gravel in stream beds and tried to shore up riverbanks without the usual regulatory review from a state environmental agency, which was flooded out of its offices in Waterbury and overwhelmed with requests for assistance. “As a result, the public often was not informed of what work was authorized, landowners were sometimes confused regarding the nature of what work they could conduct, and in other cases people either ignored the requirement to get instream [work] authorization or acted beyond the scope of the authorization given,” it said.
