BNSF sought a single reliable source to protect the BNSF franchise and assure safe operations during the construction of highway-rail grade separation projects in Southern California. They needed a firm with construction management skills and significant railroad construction project experience.

RailPros answered the call by putting in place a strong team of Resident Engineers, Construction Managers, and Inspector Coordinators led by a Project Manager with extensive rail construction experience. In addition, RailPros’ Structural Engineers are available to review critical lift plans, falsework plans, shoring plans, and other structural plans. RailPros team members monitor the contractor(s) that are working on each project to make sure they are following BNSF accepted construction documents, ensuring proper coordination occurs between BNSF forces, and other project parties, as well as providing proper documentation and reporting of the work being performed. RailPros also closely monitors each project to ensure compliance with BNSF and FRA on-track safety requirements.

RailPros is currently providing construction management services for more than 12 individual project locations in California and Washington. RailPros helps identify potential issues early on and work with the BNSF project manager to mitigate those issues prior to work being performed.
