Project Description 

Crews reconfigured and expanded the track infrastructure at Columbia Grain’s facility at the U.S.-Canadian border in Montana. 

Project Scope 

RailWorks crews shifted and rehabilitated existing track and two turnouts. They also constructed nearly 5,800 feet of new track with concrete ties and installed two #11 turnouts. This work included the construction a new lead track to enable the facility to handle unit grain trains. Despite rainy weather and a related project delay, RailWorks brought in extra crews to speed up the work. The project was completed on time and without incident.
