All structural elements at Flushing Main Street Bridge have been rehabilitated. Drainage improvements have been completed at both abutments, and top flange steel strengthening of the fascia girders has been completed. Both ornamental steel façades were removed, and all loose concrete has been removed from the deck underside and piers. Bridge deck waterproofing is expected to be completed by fall of this year.
The Flushing Main Street Bridge, built in 1913, is in Flushing, Queens, and serves the Port Washington Branch, carrying two Port Washington Branch tracks over four lanes of vehicular traffic. The bridge has experienced years of deterioration and rehabilitation was necessary to reduce maintenance, prolong the life of the structure and prevent emergency steel repairs.
