Gilbane brought a “builder make it happen” mentality to the project.
All along the eastern United States CSX upgraded its freight rail lines, switches, signals, and bridges from Chicago, IL, to Jacksonville, FL; Jacksonville, FL, to Virginia; New York City, NY, to Albany, NY.
- 52 projects, including nine (9) related only to signal control
- Of the 37 “build” jobs on this contract, 33 were supervised directly by Gilbane
- Over 300 bids involved
- As many as eight superintendents were in the field to oversee construction, push schedules, and monitor costs
- The projects put-in-place represented an additional 95 miles of lines to CSX’s system
Based on the success of the Capacity Improvement Program and the satisfaction with Gilbane, CSX awarded Gilbane the preconstruction of S Line projects in Florida. Architects on the project included: HDR; TranSystems Corporation; HNTB; AECOM/DMJM; STV Group, Inc.; AECOM/URS Corporation
The project results provided CSX with improved velocity and additional capacity with an infrastructure which is safe, reliable and maintainable.
