Provided construction inspection services for this NYSDOT contract, to provide a median barrier system on both I-496 (Exit 70-73) and NY Route 27 (Exit 59-66), to address the future potential for high severity crossover accidents.

This project improved the overall safety of the roadway by reducing the possibility of median crossover accidents and upgrading existing barrier. The improvements included a new cable median barrier system. In addition, existing median rail at bridges and sign structures were placed, replaced and/or upgraded as necessary. Minor clearing and grubbing was also necessary.
