NJ Transit Portal Bridge

NJ Transit Portal Bridge

Project Overview

The Portal Bridge has been in operation since 1910 and runs across the Hackensack River between the cities of Kearny and Secaucus, New Jersey. This rail bridge is a vital part of the Northeast Corridor system, one of the busiest rail corridors in the nation running service between Boston, Massachusetts and Washington, D.C. The Portal Bridge Capacity Enhancement Project is being undertaken by Amtrak and NJ Transit. The project aims to improve and increase the capacity of this vital rail crossing. The preferred alternative has been selected and the project is currently in the Final Engineering and Design phase.

In February 2010 Portal Partners retained Envision through a contract to provide consulting services to implement Oracle Primavera Contract Management, Primavera 6 and Primavera 6 Web for the Portal Bridge Project.  This contract includes defining and documenting project procedures using Contract Management 13, defining and documenting schedule review procedures using Primavera 6 Web, customized training for Contract Management and Primavera 6.  Envision is also assisting New Jersey Transit in writing "standard" contract specifications for the use of Contract Management and Primavera 6 on all construction contracts associated with the Portal Bridge Project.
