Skelly and Loy provides cost-effective high quality environmental consulting services for both rail freight and passenger rail operations and has been doing so for more than three decades. Recent economic conditions have led many rail service providers to reevaluate the conditions of their infrastructure network and consider capacity for expanding new capital projects. Unlike many other transportation sectors, the rail industry has not seen a significant capital system expansion for several generations. Many rail organizations are getting a quick, painful, and expensive education related to environmental clearances and permitting. Skelly and Loy leverages its considerable environmental and permitting experience to develop a comprehensive program of services related to infrastructure reconstruction and capacity-adding capital expansion. We complete environmental clearance for projects under Federal Transit Administration, Federal Railroad Administration, and the Surface Transportation Board guidelines.
