Albany-Schenectady Double Track
Rifenburg undertook 17 miles of track bed construction between the Rensselaer Station and Schenectady Station, in order to prepare for the installation of a new track. The existing conditions were a single track, shared between commuter and freight trains. The task at hand required our team to excavate existing material adjacent to the live track while also preparing the subgrade for the installation of subbase and ballast stone. A key component of this project was Rifenburg’s ability to utilize existing material by crushing old ballast stone to create new subbase.
