New York, NY

Market: Transportation

Client

Parsons Brinckerhoff Inc.

Completion

2007

Replacing a 108-year-old streetcar barn, the 100th Street Bus Depot opened in 2003. Shortly after construction, the elevated concrete floor slabs cracked. The contractor attempted to repair the 280,000 sq ft of elevated decks and ramps, but subsequent cracking, including some through the previous repairs, raised concern about the service life of the depot. SGH investigated the cause of cracking in the concrete slabs.
