Following the disastrous effects of Hurricane Sandy, The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey – PATH – called upon the Joint Venture of Daidone / Aldridge (DAJV) to help rebuild their Transit system and restore service. Within hours of the call DAJV was able to mobilize multiple crews to provide emergency power to vital systems and start the damage assessment process, and within one week of the call over 60 DAJV personnel were working 24/7 rebuilding the transit system. In the 6 week period following the initial call, DAJV completed installation of signal, power and fiber cables, removal and installation of new signal/power equipment, and infrastructure maintenance with the use of innovative DAJV owned railroad equipment. In total, DAJV installed over 75,000 feet of cable including new signal cable, new fiber optic cable, new power cable, and new 650 DC cable throughout multiple transit tunnels. DAJV crews removed, refurbished and reinstalled a large amount of signal equipment including 41 signals, installed 38 new signal junction boxes, removed 38 train stops, and terminated and tested 8 new signal cases and 11 new relay room racks. In addition to the complex task of completing the work with in the short time frame available, DAJV also had to coordinate with multiple other contractors also working to restore service. Twice a day, DAJV management would attended the “work rights” meetings with the Authority to schedule track access between the multiple other contractors as well as PATH’s own work forces. The ability of DAJV to mobilize manpower & specialized rail equipment quickly, provided quality supervision and workmanship, work with multiple other contractors to complete this challenging design / build project allowed the Port Authority to restore service quickly.
