This 4-year construction project for the Rehabilitation of the Tunnel and Brooklyn Plaza at the Hugh L. Carey (formerly Brooklyn Battery) Tunnel is partially funded through a FEMA grant for Sandy-related repairs (Project BB-28S) to prevent damage to the tunnel from future flood events. The remaining portion of this project (BB-28/Ph. II/54), consists of previously planned capital work funded from MTA B&T’s Capital Budget. The total scope includes:

  • Replacing all traffic control and communications systems
  • Replacement all lighting system, including use of new LED light fixtures and emergency way-finding safety lights
  • Replacing the drainage pump and fire line systems
  • Replacing tunnel wall tiles, ceiling finishes, catwalks and duct banks
  • Rehabilitation of tunnel curbs and gutters
  • Repaving of tunnel roadways
  • Rehabilitation of the Brooklyn toll plaza to improve traffic flow

CSA is providing mechanical, electrical (low voltage) and fire protection construction inspection services. Our inspectors are responsible for:

  • Recording of construction daily reports and quantity computations to verify progress/work performed
  • Coordinating with the construction contractor, client, utilities and other agencies
  • Observation and visual inspection of materials, equipment and supplies delivered to the Project site
  • Monitoring, and if necessary, rejecting work that is unsatisfactory, faulty, defective, damaged, or otherwise non-compliant with the construction contract documents
  • Preparation of sketches and revisions to drawings as necessary, to resolve unforeseen, actual, field conditions encountered
  • Preparation of intermediate and final deficiency lists (punch-lists)

The work must be completed during off peak hours, nights and weekends when limited tunnel outages are available.
