Improving Safety and Efficiency with UAS Infrastructure Inspection

An added benefit is increased inspection crew safety as UAS are flown from the ground without the need to climb into the structure.

Troy Marina North Riverwalk Extension 

City of Troy 

$4,245,000 

The Marina North Riverwalk section that connects Downtown Troy's employment opportunities to the North Central qualifying census tract, is the most expensive leg of Troy's eventual 7-mile Riverwalk along the entire length of the City. Configuration on two of this segments ten traversed parcels must be of cantilevered construction over the river bank to bypass the existing uses. This requires mobilization of marine equipment to drill and place footings that will support the trail, as well as expensive material to support the structure that is not merely asphalt over base.  The balance of this trail segment is constructed on-grad with a more affordable asphalt over base construction. To the south and north of this segment, the Riverwalk is able to be constructed on-grade across across riverside parcels. Troy continues to construct portions of the Riverwalk along the Hudson, and will add 1 mile this summer in Lansingburgh.
