The ground breaking ceremony for Alexander-Hamilton Bridge renovation project,the largest single phase project for the New York Department of Transportation, was held on Wednesday.

The project, launched by the China Construction America, Inc. (CCA), consists of the renovation project of a steel arch bridge across the river and the corresponding eight ramps spanning the Harlem River, and the interchange of the U.S. National Interstate Highway I-95 and I-87 connecting Manhattan and Bronx boroughs of New York City.

The 466-meter main bridge has a total of 9 crosses. Major work includes reconstruction and expansion of the two-way eight-lane bridge to a two-way ten-lane bridge, changing of the steel bridge deck, reconstruction and reinforcement of steel box girder and beams.

The project is scheduled to be completed on Dec. 31, 2013, lasting some 57 months.

In March 2009, CCA joined the competition with other competitors including top contractors Skanska, Kiewit and Perini bidding for the Alexander Hamilton Bridge renovation project and finally won the 407-million-dollar project.

The project indicates another big step forward for CCA in the mainstream building market in the United States, said a CCA official.
