MTA-NYCT – Sandy Repair Project – Montague Tube Rehabilitation
- Client: MTA, New York City Transit
- Project Value: $102,443,000 (JV Total)
After Hurricane Sandy, the MTA was able to restore service through the Montague Tunnel that permits “R” train service from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Soon after the restoration, it became evident that the saltwater flowing through the tunnel caused permanent damage to the signal system and power network feeding train service. The MTA closed the tunnel and awarded a contract to a joint venture of Judlau Contracting, Inc., TC Electric, LLC, and J-Track, LLC to perform major tunnel, track and electrical replacements on an accelerated basis. The shutdown permits work to take place on a 24/7 basis. Efforts are underway to increase production in an attempt to beat the accelerated contract date.
