Gateway Development Commission Awards Two Contracts

December 19, 2018---North Bergen--Governor Andrew M. Cuomo tours the North River Rail Tunnel that connects New Jersey and New York Wednesday night December 19, 2018. The North River Tunnels are a pair of tunnels that carry Amtrak and New Jersey Transit rail lines under the Hudson River between Weehawken, New Jersey and Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan, New York City. As of March 2018, up to $541 million for the Gateway Project, a program to build two additional rail tunnels under the Hudson River, was provided in the Consolidated Appropriations Act. (Kevin P.

The Gateway Development Commission made its first direct contract awards: two contracts for construction and construction management services on the Tonnelle Avenue Bridge and Utility Relocation Project.

This critical early work package of the Hudson Tunnel Project (HTP) will be the first construction on the project in New Jersey and is expected to begin this fall. Construction is also expected to begin this year in New York on the Hudson Yards Concrete Casing-Section 3.

Following a publicly advertised bidding process, Naik Consulting Group, P.C. will provide expert professional construction management and related technical services for the Tonnelle Avenue Bridge and Utility Relocation Project, while Conti Civil, LLC will be responsible for construction of the project.

The Tonnelle Avenue Bridge and Utility Relocation Project involves the relocation of utilities and the construction of a new roadway bridge for Tonnelle Avenue in North Bergen, New Jersey. The new roadway bridge will be located immediately above a new future railroad right-of-way, which will allow for a connection to the new tunnel portal at the western slope of the New Jersey Palisades. It will also provide construction access between the staging sites on either side of Tonnelle Avenue.

With the GDC Board’s action today on the Tonnelle Avenue Bridge and Utility Relocation Project, five out of nine contemplated Hudson Tunnel Project packages will be in procurement or construction by October 2023.
