Piedmont Improvement Program (PIP), Norfolk Southern
Railroad Consultants played a vital role in the progression of this project for Norfolk Southern by providing construction management and construction surveying for track construction and grade acceptance, including the Haydock to Junker Double Mainline and the Reid to North Kannapolis Double Mainline. The projects included new double track, with multiple railroad and highway bridges constructed, and multiple shoo fly tracks being constructed to facilitate construction. In addition, 13 bridges were built to carry roadways over or under railroad tracks, to separate traffic from trains, and to improve safety for motorists. Railroad Consultants also managed the construction of approximately 12 miles of new highway to facilitate the new highway bridges and remove railroad crossings.
