AMTRAK Keystone ClearanceClient : Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (as subconsultant to DMJM Harris)
Location: Eastern Pennsylvania
As part of an ongoing cooperative improvement project effort between PennDOT and AMTRAK, Skelly and Loy conducted a feasibility and cost-benefit analysis of railcar doublestacking in the Keystone Corridor. The study involved field views and environmental resources inventories for more than 80 structures spanning the corridor between Harrisburg and Philadelphia. An in-house developed, web-based computer application was employed to estimate costs of environmental compliance, while achieving the Pennsylvania Utility Commission-mandated 22-foot minimum clearance between rail and overhead structure. Skelly and Loy’s work was incorporated as part of a full Cost Benefit Analysis and Financial Summary prepared by DMJM Harris.
