A leading civil and building construction company offering diversified general contracting and design-build services to private clients and public agencies throughout the world has announced that New York City's Department of Transportation is listing them as the low bidder for the $102.7 million construction project replacing The City Island Bridge crossing Eastchester Bay.

This multimillion dollar project includes the construction and removal of a temporary bridge and approach roadways, as well as the demolition of the existing bridge, construction of a single steel tower cable-stayed bridge with private utilities, reconstruction of roadways, upgrades and overall rehabilitation of City Island Esplanade and Pelham Bay Park with new landscapes.

Tutor Perini Corporation claims that once completed in July of 2016, the new bridge will be the first cable-stayed bridge built in the State of New York. Officials say that work is expected to begin in April 2013.
