Norfolk Southern at Dillerville Yard – Phase 2 West Yard

This project involved the construction of site improvements at an existing Norfolk Southern rail yard facility located in Manheim Township, Lancaster County, PA, just north of their existing tracks and behind the Harrisburg Pike United States Post Office.  The purpose of the project was to consolidate and reconstruct the existing Dillerville Yard in order to increase the capacity and operational efficiency for Norfolk Southern to better accommodate future freight demands.  In addition, this provides Franklin & Marshall College and Lancaster General Health the ability to develop an existing Norfolk Southern rail yard that will be abandoned.  The following items were included in our scope of work:  erosion control, clearing and grubbing, 75,000 CY bulk excavation, storm water improvements, three (3) retaining walls, 20,000 ton railroad subballast, paving, site electrical and landscaping.
