This “new start” project featured an 11.6-mile light rail transit (LRT) line linking downtown Minneapolis with the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and the Mall of America.
RailWorks companies performed a range of construction services, totaling one-third of the total project value:
L.K. Comstock National Transit installed most of the systems work, including train signaling, communications, central control, traction power and the overhead catenary system.
RailWorks Track Systems installed the double-track line and the track in the maintenance yard, including dual block track through the 9,000-foot twin-bore tunnel, direct fixation track on an aerial deck, and concrete-embedded track through the downtown and the Mall of America.
