New York’s MTA Capital Construction Company has awarded a contract to Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) to provide construction management services for the first phase of the Second Avenue Subway project.
The subway will include a two-track line along Second Avenue from 125th Street to the Financial District in Lower Manhattan. It will also include a connection to existing subway lines. Sixteen new stations will be constructed.
Phase 1 of the project involves construction of twin tunnels and three new stations, and the rehabilitation of the 63rd Street station will enable the new line to connect to existing service.
Managing six concurrent construction contracts, PB will provide resident engineering and inspection services. The firm will be responsible for design/constructability reviews, contract management and administration, value engineering, utility coordination, maintenance and protection of traffic, commissioning and startup, and project close-out.
