Newark, New Jersey
Tutor Perini/Parsons JV
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is embarking on a major modernization and redevelopment effort to position Newark Liberty International (EWR) to meet the needs of the 21st Century. Terminal 1 is just the start of the $2.7 billion redevelopment that aims to upgrade New Jersey’s primary international gateway. The 33-gate structure will replace the current Terminal A. Ferreira’s scope of work includes installation of drainage and subdrainage piping, sanitary pipe structures and manholes, installation of a new water main, and communication and electrical duct banking.
Added in 2002
The word “Liberty” wasn’t added to the airport’s name until 2002. It was added to honor the United Airlines Flight 93 that left Newark on September 11, 2001, and crashed into a field in Shanksville, PA after it was hijacked by terrorists.
