Completion Date: 2005
The New Jersey Transit $864M Southern New Jersey Light Rail Transit System, also known as the “River Line”, was constructed under the Design/Build/Operate/Maintain method, and consists of a 34 mile long light rail commuter line constructed within an existing (and fully operational) Conrail alignment with 20 station stops extending from Trenton to Camden, NJ. The project consisted of construction and/or improvements for over 50 at-grade crossings; 11 mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining walls; gabion walls; more than 20 rail bridge/overpass structures; an equipment maintenance yard and facility and also included park and ride lots that provide almost 3,800 parking spaces. The system has Automatic Train Stop (ATS) train protection, for light rail vehicles at every signal.
Keville was retained as a subconsultant to the construction management (CM) team to analyze claims for additional costs on a wide range of differing site conditions, including environmental remediation, roadwork, and safety related items, in order to render a determination on entitlement.
Keville also provided construction inspection services and managed the completion of the punch list work.
