Project Location: Halethorpe, MD

Contract Amount: $14,000,000

Project Description: W. M. Schlosser was awarded a $14 million dollar project to construct a new station for the MARC commuter rail service located in Halethorpe, MD, a suburb of Baltimore. The Halethorpe station is the 5th busiest station on the Penn Line serving approximately 2,000 travelers per day.

The station will consist of two new 700 foot long high level platforms that commuters will use to board the trains for their daily commute to and from Washington DC. In addition, there will be two new stair and elevator towers connected with a pedestrian bridge erected over the existing train tracks.

The project has numerous obstacles that workers must deal with on a every day basis as the project is divided by the train tracks with half the work on the North bound side and the other half on the South bound side. There are four active train rails, two for commuter trains and two for Amtrak trains, which includes the Acela train that travels at speeds of 125 MPH through the work area. Schlosser employees and our subcontractors are kept safe with Amtrak’s right of way protection (watchman, track foreman, and electrical technicians) and careful overseeing by our safety department. To complicate manners, this project is located adjacent to the existing commuter station so the work on the South-bound track can only be performed during the overnight hours of 11PM to 4AM. If those complications aren’t enough, the bridge work above the tracks can only be done on weekends between 1AM and 3AM.

The platforms are constructed of pre-cast concrete that sit on 45 foot deep caissons, cast-in-place pile caps, and pre-cast concrete grade beams. Since October of 2011, all of the 85 caissons have been installed and platform erection began February 1st so the project is off to a quick start. The stair and elevator towers will be constructed of structural steel sitting on drilled augered piles, cast-in-place concrete piles, and encased in precast architectural panels.

The Schlosser team that make sure it stays on track is Kelcey Wilson, Project Manager; Tommy Hood, Superintendent; Jesus Castro, Night Superintendent; Chris Chapman, CQC Manager; Robbin Greer, Office Manager; and Gary Spitalsky, Sr. Project Manager.
