CSX had only a 12 hour repair window to remove existing tracks, install a new pile cap, and resume rail traffic.
CP&P’s Dunn, NC facility designed, fabricated and delivered a 55,000 lb. precast concrete pile cap within the 4 week requirement.
CSX needed to repair a badly damaged railroad trestle in Benson, NC. A new pile cap was needed and timing was critical. Repairs had to take place within four weeks and they only had a 12 hours window of downtime to remove the existing tracks, excavate around piles driven over 80 feet into the ground, and install a new pile cap, new tracks and turn the train traffic back onto the trestle.
CSX worked directly with the team at CP&P’s Dunn, NC facility to design, submit, and fabricate a 55,000 lb. (27.5 ton) precast concrete pile cap. With less than 4 weeks to get things designed, approved, and built, on April 12 (as scheduled,) the precast pile cap was delivered, installed and CSX train service returned with “plenty of time to spare.”
