Route 240X Bridge Over Cattaraugus Creek, Ashford And Concord NY

New, realigned 3-span bridge over Cattaraugus Creek with pedestrian bridge conversion of the former historic truss.

This $9M project involved the design of new 3-span, 485-foot curved multi-girder bridge along a shifted roadway alignment with skewed solid piers and radial cantilever abutments set on 42-inch diameter drilled shafts. Under a state mandate to reduce used tire stockpiles in western NY, the approach embankments were constructed of an innovative shredded tire fill done under NYSDEC supervision. The former highway bridge, a 200-foot historic register eligible truss, received a major rehabilitation as part of its conversion to a dedicated pedestrian bridge. Rehabilitation work included select structural member replacement, a new concrete deck, rehabilitated bearings, localized substructure repairs, new railings and paint system. Amenities included fishing platforms, river access paths and a parking lot.
