Project Description 

In a 72-hour work window, RailWorks dismantled and rebuilt a 110-foot-long bridge in Kearney, Ariz.

Project Scope 

This job  presented a challenge due to the tight work window to perform extensive work.  After just a few days of prep time, the RailWorks crew had the track from a Sunday evening until the following Thursday morning. In 72 hours, RailWorks was to remove the track, ballast, deck boards and all stringers and caps, and then rebuild the 110-foot-long, 35-foot tall bridge. They wrapped up work and ran a train and light engines over the track by 7 p.m. Wednesday – 10 hours ahead of schedule.
