New York Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) recently awarded a $90.6 million contract for Phase II of its Times Square Subway Station Complex reconstruction project to a joint venture comprising Granite Halmar and Schiavone Construction Co. Inc.

Under contract terms, the joint venture will reconstruct the No. 7 Flushing Line and N, R, Q and W Broadway Line Stations, including architectural treatments; upgrade communication, electrical, lighting and plumbing systems; and repair structural deficiencies. The team also will widen the 41st Street passageway between Broadway and Seventh Avenue; add a set of stairs to connect the Flushing mezzanine to Broadway platform, which serves 161,000 riders daily; replace three escalators; and install two new elevators that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Schiavone Construction’s portion of the contract is $54.4 million; Granite Halmar’s, $36.2 million.

The project is slated for completion in mid-2006.
