Linear Construction

The 2009 Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) devised rules for remediating suspected or known contamination when constructing linear construction projects, or LCPs. SRRA also created the Licensed Site Remediation Professional Program for the remediationof contaminated sites in New Jersey.

Under SRRA, linear construction projects are defined as:

Construction and development activities within an area such as a public or private roadway, railroad, or utility line and the rights-of-way thereto that are undertaken to create, maintain or alter the public or private roadway, railroad or utility line that:

  1. Includes one or more contaminated properties, or parts of properties; and
  2. Will generate more than 200 cubic yards of contaminated soil or fill or disposal during the duration of the linear construction project.

The LCP rules were created because it is common to encounter known, or previously unknown contaminated sites when constructing LCPs. Instead of being overseen by assigned NJDEP case managers, the party involved with an LCP must engage an LSRP.

Excel has been proactively learning and adjusting to these rules since they were adopted and now has seven highly qualified LSRPs who can manage linear construction projects. The company has completed multiple projects with our goals being to employ best management practices while protecting human health and the environment in a manner that allows your LCP to proceed as efficiently and quickly as possible.
