Testing and inspection on the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge in New York was recently completed by Atlas Evaluation & Inspection Services (AEIS)

The $3.98 billion twin-span bridge features eight traffic lanes with shoulders, dedicated bus and emergency vehicle lanes, and one of the longest bike and pedestrian bridge paths of its kind. The bridge replaced the old Tappan Zee Bridge over the Hudson River.

With over 50 million vehicles utilizing the bridge every year, the Cuomo Bridge is 3 miles in length, making it the longest in the state. It features a cable-stayed span design which opened to traffic in 2018 and crosses one of the widest areas of the Hudson River. The new bridge will mean less congestion and improved conditions for motorists in years to come.

“We are proud to have partnered with The LiRo Group and the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge project teams to complete testing and inspection on this incredible project,” Nagesh Goel, President and Co-Founder of AEIS, said in a statement. “Since 2008, AEIS has provided inspection, testing and evaluation services across the tri-state area and the nation to create optimally safe outcomes.”

As an inspection agency in the New York Metro area, AEIS was selected to provide special inspections on the Cuomo Bridge, including performing specialty testing and providing inspection personnel.

AEIS says bridge inspection and testing are valuable tools in ensuring that the newly constructed infrastructure is built in a safe manner, and that any underlying problems may be resolved. The agency says that by providing quality assurance, safety may be increased.
