Park Avenue Tunnel Rehabilitation

The City Of New York

The Park Avenue Tunnel in New York City carries one lane of Northbound traffic from 33rd St to 40th St. The Park Avenue Tunnel, completed in the 1834, has been in operation for over 150 years, and was previously used for various railroads. The rehabilitation of the tunnel will begin in 2014, and consist of completing reconstructing the tunnel. As part of the works, the tunnel drainage system will be replaced, including installing catch basins, manholes, and drain pipes, both in the vertical walls and underneath the pavement. The shotcrete lining will have steel reinforcement with lattice girders, which will aid in control of geometry.

Gall Zeidler Consultants has been contracted to perform inspection services during the reconstruction of the Park Avenue Tunnel. Specifically, GZ will supervise the demolition of existing tunnel walls, the installation of a new waterproofing membrane and tunnel drainage, and the construction of new final support utilizing shotcrete.
