Lake Champlain 2500x1406 1
This week, we showcase Sessler Wrecking’s expertise in bridge demolition with a bridge that spanned across Lake Champlain, connecting New York to Vermont.
This bridge was closed immediately when inspectors found deficiencies during an inspection and called the experts, Sessler Wrecking.
The resulting detour was 85 miles long. Sessler Wrecking was hired under an emergency contract with New York State to aid in the implosion and to perform all aspects of the recovery and removal from Lake Champlain. A bridge of this size required a large crew from Sessler and the highest levels of coordination between supervisors and operators of multiple pieces of equipment working simultaneously.
Thousands of tons of steel and concrete were retrieved from the bottom of the lake, some as much as 90’ deep, and properly disposed of. A majority of this work was performed from barges during the winter months, where the North Country cold, snow, and ice posed challenges. As always, Sessler performed all work safely and efficiently.
