East Side Access is one of the largest transportation infrastructure projects currently underway in the United States with a history that reaches back to the 1950’s when discussions were first held regarding regional transportation planning. The project encompasses work in multiple locations in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx and includes more than 11 miles of tunneling. When completed, East Side Access will serve approximately 162,000 customers a day, providing a faster and easier commute from Long Island and Queens to the east side of Manhattan in a new 8-track terminal and concourse below Grand Central Terminal. The revised budget for the East Side Access project is $10.178 billion.

The work under Contract CH057 is for earth and site work, utility relocations, track realignment, drainage, hazardous material abatement, demolition of existing structures and construction of new heavy civil structures within the LIRR Harold Interlocking located in Queens. The contract is valued at $50 to $100 million. JPCL has been retained to provide inspection services for soil, concrete, and steel.
