Rail Services

Rail is a vital part of the nation’s transportation network and one that touches almost every community and industry. Having a consultant who is not only familiar with rail infrastructure, but also the procedures and priorities of the entities that operate it, is essential for leveraging the many economic and quality of life benefits that can be had by successfully incorporating rail into your development plans.

“This safety study will serve as a model as we pursue similar corridor studies across the Country.”
John Caufield, PE, Manager of Public Projects, BNSF Railway
“I wanted to tell you again that the rationale and data you compiled and presented was fantastic. We are going to save lives along this corridor and in no small part due to your efforts. It’s been a pleasure working with you and I hope to implement this process across the entire State of Missouri.”
S. Chris Brownell, P.E. – Railroad Projects Manager for MoDOT Multi-Modal Department
“I commend what you and the City are seeking to do here. This is a holistic and long vision-oriented safety plan, especially with the inclusion of the grade separated structures. The most progressive communities, like Wentzville, are finding ways to separate themselves from the railroad while at the same time preserving the ability to move and grow and it’s so nice to see folks who truly get it.”
W. R. Miller ‐ Manager Grade Crossing Safety ‐ AL, FL, GA, IA, IL, KY, LA, MO, MS & TN Norfolk Southern Corporation
