Roosevelt Island Operating Corp.


The Roosevelt Island Tramway provides urban transit from Roosevelt Island to Midtown Manhattan. SCJ Alliance staff provided oversite of the operations and maintenance contract to assure compliance with safety regulations for many years before the modernization of the system.

Once it was decided that the system needed to be replaced, SCJ staff worked as Owner’s Engineer from preliminary design through implementation. Specific services included preparation of RFP documents, contractor selection, system design review, and owner’s representation during construction.
