MARLTON, NJ—New Jersey Transit Corp. (NJ Transit) has tapped Hill International, based in Marlton, N.J. to provide project management oversight services in connection with the state agency’s Sandy recovery efforts. The two-year assignment has an estimated initial value to Hill of approximately $2.3 million.

Last October, Superstorm Sandy caused significant damage to a large portion of NJ Transit’s transportation assets, impacting the organization’s ability to provide public transportation.

NJ Transit considers the repairs and protective measures critical to restore and maintain safe and reliable public transportation to pre-storm conditions. These repairs and protective measures, however, are extensive and technically complex, requiring the expertise of Hill International.

"We are looking forward to our oversight role of NJ Transit as they work to fully recover from the damages the agency sustained as a result of Superstorm Sandy," said Michael V. Griffin, SVP and Mid-Atlantic regional manager for Hill's project management group.
