Core drilling on upstate New York’s Popolopen Creek Bridge

The blizzard of 2010 had just passed through the Hudson Valley region of New York State affording a break in the weather to extract 13 core samples of the concrete pier on Popolopen Creek Bridge for testing to determine state of conditions. Keith Luscinski is on the ropes and conducted the procedure.  NY Department of Transportation was also onsite, as were representatives from  project client WSP SELLS.  This deck truss design bridge was built in 1915 and widened in 1935. It is 600 feet long, 48 feet wide, and rises about 150 feet above the mouth of Popolopen Creek.
