September 2019 Recap By Nicholas Cosentino
On September 17, 2019, the Mohawk-Hudson section dinner meeting included a tour of STS Steel Inc. at 10 Rush Street, Schenectady, NY 12305. 18 members and guests were in attendance for the tour and the dinner was held at Druthers Brewing Company at 221 Harborside Drive, Schenectady, NY 12305. Mr. David Miles coordinated the tour and Dr. Greg Mohr coordinated the dinner.
STS steel fabricates bridges for various Departments of Transportation, including New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. STS Steel has approximately 42 employees covering engineering, drawing, review, and estimating. STS has CNC flame cutting, CNC plasma, drilling and an automated beam line. Most of the welding is FCAW and SAW using AWS D1.1 and D1.5 certified welders.
The tour focused on the replacement of the Westminster Bascule Bridge, for which STS steel was chosen to fabricate sections for the new bridge that is replacing the previous bridge in use since the 70’s. A bridge has existed at the location since the early 1900’s but has been replaced multiple times; the bridge is the only crossing of Westchester Creek readily accessible to the local, residential, industrial and commercial areas on either side of the creek. The new proposed design replaces the two current double leaf bascule bridges with two single leaf bascule bridges. Additionally, the new bridges will be wider and include the addition of a bikeway.
