Have they been doing work on the NEC lines? I just moved to NJ, and it seems like a lot of the rails have recently (in the last year or so) been upgraded to concrete - rather than wooden - ties. Was this just repair work [Sandy]?

Is the tunnel box that long concrete trench thingy right near the yard tracks?

Because it doesn't look like it's going to go deep enough soon enough to get under the river.

Yes, it is. And they reserved it for the future, just like lower level of 63rd Street tunnel under East River

Wait, then that ISN'T the track deck that we're seeing here?

Would the actual tracks be below what is being built?

Siemens announces US rail expansion to meet PTC demand
14 AUG, 2014

[IMG]http://i0.wp.com/www.globalrailnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/MTA-Metro-North-************.jpg?resize=720%2C400[/IMG]

Siemens Rail Automation has said it is having to expand its operation in the USA in order to deliver a major upgrade to train control systems on New York’s Metro-North Railroad and Long Island Rail Road (LIRR).

Two existing Siemens’ sites in Pittsburgh will be combined and moved to a new location in Munhall, Pennsylvania. Siemens also plans to create an additional 129 engineering and manufacturing positions.

In November 2013, New York transit authority MTA awarded Bombardier and Siemens a $428 million contact to bring Positive Train Control (PTC) to the LIRR and Metro-North Railroad. The package of works involves upgrading signalling systems along 1,100 kilometres of track and 1,500 trains across the two lines.
