Bids for the New York City Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Replacement of City Island Road Bridge over Eastchester Bay (Borough of the Bronx) project are due Tuesday, February 5, 2013.

The current City Island bridge is a low-rise 20-foot-tall bridge over Eastchester Bay connecting City Island with the Bronx mainland. It was built in 1901 and rehabilitated in 1977. The bridge is expected to cost $150 million, with Federal funding on the project covering $100 million.

The Replacement of the City Island Road Bridge covers both the demolition of the existing bridge and the construction of both a temporary bridge and the new single tower asymmetrical steel cable-stayed replacement bridge.

The temporary bridge will be constructed next to the current bridge from Pelham Bay Park to City Island Avenue and the new span will be built where the existing City Island Bridge now sits.

Construction is set to begin in 2013 and is scheduled for completion in 2016.
