IRT Flushing Line Signal System Rehabilitation


HAKS provided scheduling services for New York City Transit’s $67 million Flushing Line Project, which called for signal system rehabilitation between the 111th Street Interlocking and Main Street in Queens.  The work was performed under an on-call contract with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.   

Construction involved furnishing and installing signal equipment, cable and materials; signal apparatus and electric power work for the relay rooms, communication-based train control rooms, track rack rooms, signal workshops and other signal enclosures; and all signal equipment and appurtenances at field locations required to completely rehabilitate the signal system. 

The project involved:

  • Preparing, maintaining and modifying a construction project management (CPM) network schedule for planning activities
  • Organizing and executing the work, including recording and reporting actual performance and progress of work
  • Conducting monthly CPM update meetings with the contractor to verify progress and discuss any problem areas
  • Analyzing and commenting on monthly updates and tracking schedule activities in relation to work being performed in the field
  • Preparing and recommending recovery plans for any delay 

Our scheduling also provided for work to be performed by utility companies and by the Authority’s own forces, including general orders, work train requirements and flagging requirements. HAKS also prepared and analyzed specific activity plans (fragnets) for additional work orders and monitored any impacts to project completion.
