Nyleve Bridge Corporation
Phoenixville, PA – 2008-2009 – $900,000
Scope of Work:
A primary bridge over French Creek in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania was being replaced by PennDOT. Several environmental issues required address as part of the work including lead paint and asbestos-containing materials on the existing bridge and elevated contaminants in the subsurface soils. The piers and subsurface preparations were within a former steel-making facility with elevated inorganic constituents of concern. Neumeyer Environmental was contracted to address and manage these environmental aspects of the work.
Management of on-site soils required sampling and analysis, use of personal protective equipment, segregation of contaminated materials and water quality issues associated with installation of the pier adjacent to French Creek.
Neumeyer Environmental performed select earthwork, demolition, on-site placement and off-site disposal of surplus materials and debris. We also managed the discharge waters from the coffer dam by installing a high volume pump and treat system that allowed direct discharge to French Creek. The project required approximately 10 months to complete from plan preparation and sampling through excavation of the pier subgrade.
