THE NORTH JERSEY CHAPTER OF THE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING INSTITUTE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING AT NJIT PRRESENT

Spring 2013 Half-Day Seminar

Impact of Hurricane Sandy on Infrastructure Systems & Recovery Efforts

 Thursday, May 2nd, 2013 at NJIT

 Hurricane Sandy was the most destructive tropical storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season and the second costliest hurricane in US history. Preliminary estimates assessed damages from this hurricane at about $75 billion. At least 285 people were killed along its path in 7 countries. The impact of this superstorm on the infrastructure systems and facilities in New York and New Jersey was enormous and the recovery efforts from it are heroic. In this half-day seminar, engineers from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the New Jersey Department of Transportation, and the engineering companies of Hatch Mott & McDonald, Arora and Associates and Dewberry discuss the damages to the infrastructure systems in our area and the recovery and reconstruction efforts.

 SPEAKERS & PRESENTATIONS:

Christopher Burke, PhD, PE, PMP, Program Design Manager, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

Hurricane Sandy severely impacted Port Authority facilities. Had it not been for an intensely focused preventative-measures process and the heroic efforts of Port Authority facility forces, emergency responders and executives, the damages would have been more severe. Whether pre-placing generators, clearing pumps, filling sandbags, or risking personal safety to unclog drains and release floodwater buildup, the Port Authority clearly met and exceeded reasonable emergency response expectations.

  • Marco Levoyer, PE, Hatch Mott & McDonald
  • Pankesh Patel, PE, New Jersey Department of Transportation
