The NYC Department of Transportation has announced that Travelers Casualty and Surety Company of America will assume construction on the Metropolitan Avenue/Fresh Pond Road Bridge over the Long Island Rail Road. Beaver Concrete Construction Company Inc. will serve as its contractor.

QNS reports: “Valentino Rizzo, president of Beaver Concrete Construction, said he was not allowed to comment on the project, but his company appears to be more qualified for the job. The DOT said Beaver Concrete Construction has completed a number of bridge rehabilitation projects for the City, including repairs to the Trans-Manhattan Expressway Connector Ramp in Manhattan, and is currently under contract for other bridge rehab projects in all other boroughs.”
