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.
Transforming a Long Island Rail Road maintenance site, originally constructed in 1889, into a new 47,000 SF facility for the maintenance and repair of diesel locomotives.
In preparation for future demand due to the East Side Access (ESA) project, the expanded Mid-Suffolk Electric yard features 11 new storage tracks and service areas plus a newly constructed 32,000 SF Employee Welfare Facility.
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.
