Cianbro, alongside joint venture partner Northland Associates, Inc., served as General Contractor (GC) for the modernization and expansion of the U.S. Land Port of Entry in New York. This two-phased project was constructed adjacent to the existing port of entry and included significant site and infrastructure improvements. Including a 58,000 SF building and 7 inspection lanes for processing commercial traffic, a 33,000 SF building, 8 inspection lanes, and a 32,500 secondary inspection area for processing non-commercial traffic, an 84,300 SF single level overhead parking structure/bridge spanning over top of the new facility and existing I-81, a 30' tall retaining wall, a Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) building, an outbound inspection building with secondary inspection, a wastewater treatment plant, and a new APHIS/Vet inspection facility.
Construction occurred around the existing port of entry, which is operational 24/7. A suspension bridge was the only access on/off from the island where weight restrictions necessitate all suitable materials resulting from the rock crushing effort be reused as fill to minimize hauling importing and exporting fill material at the site.
