Cabecera Tunnels

Judlau Contracting has always been digging. The company started working on subsurface utilities in the 1980s, focusing primarily on sewer and water main replacement. Three decades later we are still digging only deeper.

A project that is both important to New York commuters as well as immense in scope is East Side Access, which will create a new Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) connection from Queens into new terminal beneath Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. This will increase capacity into Manhattan’s East Side, reduce commute time and improve service for over 160,000 daily passengers. In a $1.2 billion joint venture, Judlau completed work on the Manhattan tunnels excavation as well as the excavation of caverns that will eventually function as the new LIRR platforms and mezzanine below Grand Central Terminal.
