New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has selected Schiavone and EXP Services P.C. for design-build services on the Rockaway Line Rehabilitation & Resiliency Project. The Rockaway Line is a vital subway link connecting Queens with the Rockaway Peninsula in New York City.
EXP Services P.C.’s multidisciplinary experts will lead the design aspects on this critical design-build project to alleviate the effects of climate change on New York’s transit system. EXP and partner Schiavone will also support community outreach to minimize the effects of construction on the general public.
The $392 million project will include the design and construction of viaduct repairs at the Hammels Wye. Campus and along the east and west branches of the Rockaway Line. To minimize the effects of future storm events on transit infrastructure, resiliency and flood mitigation elements will be implemented. As the lead designer, EXP Services P.C. will provide design management, quality assurance, signal installation and environmental compliance. The project also includes the design and installation of a new signal tower, track crossover and related traction-power, signal system and utility components at the Beach 105th Street Station and the replacement of electrical and mechanical components of the South Channel Swing Bridge.
This project will be among the first to take advantage of the new federal guidance allowing local hiring provisions in MTA projects.
The MTA Rockaway Line Rehabilitation & Resiliency Project has an expected completion date of August 2026.
