NYC Economic Development Corporation
NYCEDC is facilitating the redevelopment of a portion of the Willets Point neighborhood in Queens. New storm and sanitary sewer systems were built in advance to support the planned development. The new storm sewer system includes a new outfall to Flushing Bay, a precast concrete box culvert, several other connecting sewers, cast in place manhole chambers and a tide gate chamber, all of which are built on piles. The project also included installation of new water mains and relocation of gas mains. As a subconsultant to Hunter Roberts, PHA provided resident engineering inspection services on behalf of NYCDEP for the construction of the new storm and sanitary sewers. The work included deep excavation below ground water levels, sheeting , pile driving, precast pipes and box culverts, cast in place chambers, back filling, restoration of roads and signals, and MPT.
