NJ Transit contracts joint venture to manage construction of Trans-Hudson tunnel's first phase


New Jersey Transit recently awarded a contract to a joint venture comprising Parsons, Tishman Construction Corp. and Arup to provide construction management services for Phase 1 of the Trans-Hudson Express Tunnel project.

The firms will provide design oversight and cost estimates, develop a master project schedule for engineering, permitting and construction, and coordinate outreach programs for minority- and women-owned businesses.

The $7.5 billion project calls for building two single-track tunnels beneath the Hudson River and a new station below 34th Street in Manhattan connecting with Penn Station. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2009.
