New Jersey Transit Superstorm Sandy Recovery Program,
Hoboken Terminal & Rail Yard, Hoboken, New Jersey

New Jersey Transit’s Historic Hoboken Terminal and Rail Yard Facility sustained significant damage as a result of the storm water surge created by Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. As a result, NJT’s facilities were inundated with Category 3 type water which contaminated areas of the facility with potentially harmful microbial bacterial agents. The storm surge also damaged building components including architectural, structural, electrical and mechanical systems in the newly renovated Ferry Terminal, the new Wheel True Facility and many other offices, shops and public areas throughout the terminal and rail yard.

Following the initial cleanup of accumulated sediments and debris, Matrix New World Engineering (Matrix) was tasked to perform area specific microbial investigations. Matrix identified areas of microbial contaminant concerns in coordination with general condition assessments for targeted passenger areas, retail spaces, employee welfare areas, facility areas and public spaces within the Hoboken Terminal and Rail Yard.
