The two (2) rail bridges across Pipemakers Canal will ultimately connect the Chatham and Mason rail yards, operated by CSX and Norfolk Southern railroads. This Mega-Rail project will allow 10,000-foot trains to be loaded on terminal with containers double-stacked. The trains will increase the capacity from 500,000 container lifts per year to 1 million when the project is finished.
We are proud to be the contractor for this important Georgia Ports Authority project as it is the first of its kind for the east coast. Once completed, the state-of-the-art expansion will reduce transit times to already in-service routes by more than 24 hours, and will also allow open service to inland markets in the Midwest, including Chicago, St. Louis and the Ohio Valley. The entire project is estimated for completion by the end of 2020.
