“We are well equipped to handle the challenges of managing work on New York City’s massive public transportation system,” says Hill Vice President George Keeber, PE. “Our prioritization of safety, experience with public transit agencies around the world, and awareness of the unique qualities of NYC construction projects will help us deliver these and other task orders for MTA on time and under budget.”
