The extension was dismantled in sections by saw-cutting and removing the box girders along with the associated slab, which weighed 85,000 lbs. each, as well as sections of the retaining walls using a 500-ton mobile crane, with the heaviest lift being 114,000 lbs. Where there was sufficient clearance from adjacent railway tracks, Delsan-AIM utilized excavators with hydraulic hammers to systematically demolish the remaining retaining walls.
The fireproofing was subsequently removed at this location in accordance with high-risk asbestos abatement procedures using an excavator equipped with a scarifier. Upon final clearance of the decontamination work, each section was demolished using large excavators and the debris shipped off site for recycling.
