BB&A was retained to provide detailed design services and construction document preparation for the construction of double bypass mains through the former EJ&E Railway East Joliet Yard. The project included the construction of approximately 17,740 feet of new track, lining and surfacing 11,200 feet of track to new positions, removal of 45 turnouts, and installation of 34 new turnouts. Working against a tight deadline, BB&A engineers took the project from concept visualization to advertisement for bidding in just over 6 months.
