Notice Summary:

Skanska E-J ERT Joint Venture is soliciting cost proposals from Certified SB/MWBE and DBE subcontractors/vendors for the Contract X036-23205 Amtrak East River Tunnel Rehabilitation which bids on

November 17, 2023.


Description of Project: The East River Tunnel (“ERT”) consists of four tubes that connect Manhattan to Long Island and are used for Amtrak, Metropolitan Transportation Authority (“MTA”) Long Island Rail Road (“LIRR”) services, and New Jersey Transit (“NJ TRANSIT”). 


The ERT tubes, constructed in 1909, require significant rehabilitation and improvement, due to continually worsening conditions of the tunnel structure given both its age and damage related to Superstorm Sandy. This Project will rehabilitate two tubes of the East River Tunnel (Line 2 and Line 1) that extend 2.5 miles (4 km) between portals in  Penn Station and Sunnyside Yard. The Project will ensure continuation of operations for LIRR, NJ TRANSIT, and Amtrak, and improve the safety and security of the East River Tunnel. Each Line will be reconstructed down to the concrete liner and the Work will entail the following: demolition of all tunnel components to the existing concrete tunnel liner, repair structural deficiencies of the tunnel concrete liner, reconstruction of the bench walls and duct banks; new traction power and overhead contact systems; communication and fire-life safety systems, replacement of the ballasted track with a direct fixation rail system and drainage system.
