PACO worked closely with the Construction Manager and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey to manage many aspects of the project controls on this important program for the region. PACO provided CPM Scheduling, Cost Management, Cost Control, Document Control, and LAN Administration services.
AirTrain JFK is an 8.1-mile people mover system that links the airport’s nine passenger terminals to one another, to rental car areas and long-term and employee parking, and to the Long Island Railroad and New York City subway system. The on-airport portion consists of a two-mile loop linking the passenger terminals with a 3.4-mile extension to airport terminals, short term parking garages, parking car rental facilities and long-term and employee parking lots.
The line runs to the Howard Beach subway station, 12 minutes from the airport. From Howard Beach, passengers can connect to the A train, which serves Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. The project also included a three-mile extension north to Jamaica Station and a rehabilitation of the station to permit passengers to take the Long Island Railroad or E or J subway lines. The Light Rail System was a fully automated system using the most advanced, yet fully service proven rail technology available.
