The new contract, awarded June 27, is for tunnel fit-out and terminal work. It follows the JV of Hill, LiRo, Lemley International, and HDR’s original contract for tunnel excavation work that was awarded in May 2007. The original contract work is expected to be completed by November 2013.

The MTA’s $1.7-billion No. 7 line project will extend the subway line from Times Square to 34th Street and 11th Avenue in Manhattan. Substantial completion of the overall project is expected to be reached by June 2014.

Separately, Hill was awarded a six-year, $18-million contract to provide construction inspection and project management services for the Pennsylvania Turnpike reconstruction project.
