The SPMT’s are strategically placed beneath each of the two bridge spans located at the South Assembly Area. The spans will be lifted and hauled into place on the new West and East Abutments. Each span will be installed separately with the ballast and railroad ties in place. Upon setting the bearings on the new center pier, the new rail will be lifted into place. The sequence continues with Tracks # 3 & 5 on the north side of the bridge later in the week.
The traveling public is reminded that road closures, detours and Metro North schedule changes are in effect through July 7 during this 9 day roll in period. Click here for the latest information.
