PHASE III OF TRACK RECONSTRUCTION COMPLETED

The total reconstruction of Lehigh Specialty Melting's 53-acre steel plant railroad track system is now complete.

What started out in 2006 as a plant lead track reconstruction project soon grew into a 3-phase plant-wide track reconstruction project. Stone Consulting, Inc., working in conjunction with Lehigh and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's Bureau of Rail Freight, Ports and Waterways secured two Rail Freight Grants totaling approximately $780,000 for the projects. With the Commonwealth's assistance, Lehigh has completed the final phase of its project and has moved the plant's transportation operations into the 21st century.

The 3 phases, costing more than $1,500,000, included the replacement of 8 turnouts, the removal of nearly 2,500-ft. of track and the total reconstruction of over 8,200-ft. of track including new drainage facilities and building door modifications.
