A difficult and significant portion of work for the East Side Access (ESA) project at Harold Interlocking, the busiest rail junction in the US, is completed by Railroad Construction Company, Inc. on time and on budget. More than 1.85 miles of new track, 13 turnouts and related infrastructure was installed to two crucial sections of mainline track while Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) carried 300,000 passengers each weekday.
ESA is MTA's largest capital project, with work across three boroughs and expanding deep below Park Avenue in Manhattan. Additionally, it is the first expansion of LIRR in more than 100 years.
Complete modernization of the third busiest Long Island Rail Road station, Hicksville. Aesthetic improvements have made the new station one of the most attractive in New York.
Removal and replacement of the existing track fastening system along the Westmont Viaduct for the Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO).
During the highly publicized first summer shutdown for the Commonwealth Avenue Bridge Superstructure Replacement project, RCC completed the replacement of MBTA railroad tracks within a 17-day shutdown.
"The Ben Franklin Bridge Track Rehab project is a testament to what can be accomplished with an experienced, knowledgeable, safety minded contractor."
