Queens Midtown Tunnel Control Room Renovations

Arora is providing design for the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems for the control room renovations at the Queens Midtown Tunnel, a highway toll road that crosses under the East River and connects the Borough of Queens to the Borough of Manhattan.

The project requires the upgrade of existing electronic control systems to improve situational awareness, improve customer and employee safety, and increase operational efficiencies, reliability and maintenance planning.

The MEP and fire protection/alarm design encompasses renovations in the Queens Service Building for the conditioned spaces in the control, server, and electronics rooms. In addition, support will be provided for the temporary control room while the upgrades are occurring. Arora will also develop options for increasing fiber optic cable capacity through the tunnel including connecting the service building to the tunnel.
