NJ TRANSIT Environmental On-Call
AKRF performed sensitivity assessment for the area along NJ TRANSIT’S Gladstone Branch, which sustained serious damage during Hurricane Sandy.
Fitting historic engineering drawings over aerial views of the 22-mile stretch of the railroad line, AKRF specialists were able to turn this information into GIS data and make a database of archaeologically sensitive locations along the branch.
This task supporting NJ TRANSIT with its post-Sandy repair, recovery, and resiliency efforts was the first under AKRF’s on-call contract to provide environmental consulting services to NJ TRANSIT.
AKRF’s role includes NEPA environmental reviews, cultural resources support, and Section 106 compliance and coordination.
