The impact of Hurricane Sandy has left its mark on New York’s construction industry. To date, over $2.9 billion have been allocated to the MTA for recovery and resiliency work related to Hurricane Sandy. Select funds from the FTA’s Emergency Relief Program included monies to help the MTA with recovery projects and to ensure that transit assets are better able to withstand future disasters. These projects are aimed at protecting everything from trains and buses to stations, tunnels and rail yards from storm surges and flooding.
Today, smart construction firms of all sizes across diverse markets are preparing themselves for new procurement opportunities arising from Sandy-related damage and initiatives to restore New York’s transportation system. In addition, new work in Resiliency is coming on line.
