Port Authority Transportation Company (PATCO) Way Interlocking and Subway Structure Rehabilitation Project has been recognized as a Railway Track & Structures (RT&S) Top 2022 Project.
Rehabilitation of the 3,800 ft. double-tracked Camden Subway tunnel presented multiple challenges in the logistical approach to completing the project and maintaining 24/7 rail service for passengers.
Outage preparations and equipment mobilizations occurred from a tightly-bound, single-track maintenance yard at one of the tunnel portals.
Despite limitations, RCC completed the full project scope on-time and within budget.
With revenue train operations always maintained, the existing double crossover at Way Interlocking was removed and replaced with brand new installation, including replacement of the concrete-encased steel channel support structure, thermite welding and improvements to signal circuitry.
