May 23, 2018
Railroad Construction Company, Inc. (RCC) and joint venture partner, AMCC Corp. (RCC / AMCC - A Joint Venture) successfully responded to Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) Contract #6241 - Morris Park Locomotive Shop and Employee Facility Design/Build project.
Together RCC / AMCC - A Joint Venture, along with designer of record, AECOM,offer LIRR an exceptional history of proven experience in the design and construction of railway facilities, depots, locomotive shops, maintenance facilities, track work, bridge work, buildings and civil construction in and around active railways.
The project includes construction of a new locomotive repair shop to replace the existing 125-year-old Morris Park Round House which has surpassed its design life and is presenting an additional maintenance burden on operating resources.
Once complete, the new facility will be better equipped to maintain LIRR current fleet of diesel locomotives used in revenue service. Customer service will be enhanced through better locomotive reliability and on-time performance.
