Amtrak – Public Mass Transit

Project: As a precursor to planned expansion of the Soto Street Amtrak Maintenance yard, the client needed to remediate existing ground contamination, reroute existing sewer lines, and install temporary fueling systems in advance of major development at the site.

Challenge: Working in an active train yard presented challenges to work schedules and approach to insure the facility operations were never impacted by our work. Insuring safety of our crews working between active rail lines was of utmost importance in this project.

MJK Solution: MJK approached the work by assessing the various tasks to be completed, and scheduling similar activities to streamline the work effort and optimize labor and equipment hours. In demonstration of the diversity of our capabilities, MJK performed remediation of crude oil found at shallow depths on the site, repaired active crude oil lines, tapped exiting sewer lines and re-routed approximately 800’ of 24” RCP sewer piping, relocated on-site sand towers and locomotive related equipment, installed a 12,000 gallon aboveground fuel tank and related locomotive fueling equipment, and graded and bedded approximately 1 mile of track bed.
