Port Authority NY/NJ to Rehabilitate Greenville Yard

(Press Release)
Thursday, November 17, 2011
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has hired HDR to rehabilitate the Greenville Yard in Greenville, N.J., to improve ongoing rail-to-barge-to-rail freight movements across New York Harbor. The work includes rehabilitating a barge and transfer bridge used to move freight rail cars from the yard to the barges, designing a new barge and two new bridges, demolishing two bridges, rehabilitating the rail yard and waterfront structures, and environmental permitting.
The project also includes the addition of approximately 10,000 feet of new track and design of yard operations facilities.
This project is among improvements to accommodate the larger Panamax freighters that will be in operation with the Panama Canal expansion, and to allow movement of up to 11,000 tons a day of solid waste out of New York City by rail. The solid waste currently travels by truck.
HDR, the prime design consultant, will perform a freight capacity analysis and provide context sensitive solutions. Ten bid packages will be prepared for the project’s phases. Sub-consultant Worley Parsons will perform the marine work (barge design, and rehabilitation of barge and fender system). HDR’s Pete Davis is the project manager, with Jim Kukucka from Worley-Parsons serving as deputy project manager. 
“This highly complex and fast-paced project will set a standard for other rail/port facility projects,” Davis said. 
Construction is expected to be completed in five years.
