The multi-faceted project entailed extensive coordination with Amtrak, The Metropolitan Transportation Authority, CSX Railway and The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation alongside (NYSDOT). It Included the construction of a new interchange and pedestrian facilities to improve access to the Hunts Point peninsula in the South Bronx region.
