A New York State Railroad Viaduct for Canam-Bridges
August 30, 2016
Canam-Bridges will provide steel components for the replacement of the railroad viaduct spanning over Nott Street in Schenectady, New York. This viaduct originally built in 1905 has only one span and will require 265 tons of steel components including two through plate girders—the largest one being 122 feet (37.2 meters) long—and four Goodco Z-Tech structural bearings in addition to various other components. Canam-Bridges’ client is Canadian Pacific (CP), a well-established transcontinental railroad system in Canada and the United States.
The components will be fabricated at Group Canam’s Quebec City plant on an accelerated schedule between October and December, 2016. Per CP’s request, a complete pre-assembly will be performed in the plant before delivery to the location which is planned for mid-December, 2016.
