Hudson St. - Water Tunnel Shaft 29b

This NYCDDC project in Tribeca, NY included the construction of new 36" and 48" steel water mains, with butterfly valves, regulators, and flow meters housed in reinforced concrete chambers that connect the lower Manhattan water supply to City Tunnel #3 at Shaft #29B. The $60 million project included the unique concept of "joint bidding", which combined the scope of private utility work, along with City work in the same contract, to expedite the coordination and complete the connection of the steel trunk main to shaft 29B by 2013. Related work included new distribution water mains, drainage, gas mains, electric ducts, telephone ducts, cable television facilities, street lighting, traffic signals, granite curb, pigmented sidewalk, and granite block roadways.
