Norristown High Speed Line Tie Replacement and Continuous Welded Rail

Construction Update, January 2016: The replacement and surfacing between Radnor and Bryn Mawr Inbound (towards 69th St. Transportation Center) was completed for the season. The entire block was surfaced and regulated, improving the ride quality significantly. Continuous welded rail replacement has begun (see new photo below).

Work includes tie and timber renewal, surfacing, subgrading, new third rail coverboard, and new special work including purchase of special equipment.
