Project Description 

Working as a subcontractor to Strobel Starostka Construction, RailWorks constructed the track for this $50 million rail yard project south of Tioga, N.D.

Project Scope 

The project serves as a transload site to move unit trains of crude oil on BNSF’s main line. The RailWorks crew constructed 32,000 feet of track with 12 turnouts.  RailWorks has been involved in construction among several transload facilities in North Dakota associated with the Bakken Shale oil reserves.  These facilities enable oil companies to transport crude oil extracted from shale by rail to refineries and other users.
