East Side Access Project
On the Long Island Railroad’s $10+ Billion East Side Access Project, PACOTECH™ provides key program management services that include real estate acquisition and right of way, configuration management, cost control, scheduling, document control, value engineering, administrative and graphics support, partnering, contract administration, field engineering, planning, and construction management services.
The East Side Access Project will connect the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) to Grand Central Terminal, on the east side of Manhattan, by the construction of tunnels and a new LIRR Terminal in the underlying rock beneath Grand Central Terminal. The project will utilize the existing 63rd Street tunnel which runs under the East River between Manhattan and Queens and will connect Sunnyside Yard in Queens to Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan via a new tunnel running beneath Park Avenue. The construction includes seven miles of tunnels, over 3.5 route miles, a new Sunnyside Station, an upgrade of Sunnyside Yard, 50,000 feet of new track, a new concourse for LIRR on the lower level, as well as five new entrances at Grand Central Terminal.
