WILLETS POINT REDEVELOPMENT
Hunter Roberts / NYCEDC
Willets Point is a 61-acre peninsula on the Flushing River in northern Queens, adjacent to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and Citi Field. The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is facilitating the redevelopment of this underutilized industrial area into a mixed-use development that will include retail, entertainment, hotels, a convention center, residential uses and public open spaces. New storm and sanitary sewer systems are being built in advance to support the new development. The new storm sewer system includes a new outfall to Flushing Bay, a precast concrete box culvert, cast-in-place manhole chambers, and a tide gate chamber, all of which are built on piles. The project also includes a pile-supported 36-inch sanitary sewer, new water mains and gas main relocation.
PHA was retained by NYCEDC, as a subconsultant to Hunter Roberts, to provide resident engineering inspection services on behalf of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection for the construction of the new storm and sanitary sewers. The work includes deep excavation below groundwater levels, sheeting, pile driving, precast pipes and box culverts, cast-in-place chambers, back filling, restoration of roads and signals, and MPT.
