Clifford Place Step Street
NYC Department of Design & Construction - The reconstruction of this step street in the Bronx was quite a challenge due to the limited work area and the requirement to maintain public access through the site. Sensitive rock excavation next to apartment buildings was performed with drill and split methods to reduce vibrations. Complicated concrete pours and the requested re-use of historic stones added to the complexity of this project. Once completed the finished product retained the overall look of the prior staircase while resolving the safety deficiencies.
