CSX Bridge Bundle

May of 2010 brought E.T.& L. Corp. its first Design Build project with CSX Bridge Bundle #3. E.T.& L. is the managing partner in a joint venture with J.F. White Contracting Company for this project for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Bridge Bundle #3 is part of a comprehensive statewide project to raise bridges and, in some locations, undercut the railroad tracks, so that CSX can run their double stack freight trains in and out of Massachusetts. The two year project includes bridge replacements or reconstructions at seven locations in central Massachusetts. This work will improve the vertical clearances of the existing vehicular bridges over CSX railroads. Two existing bridge superstructures will be jacked, three existing superstructures will be removed and rebuilt, and two bridges will be completely removed and rebuilt. The seven bridges are located in West Brookfield, Brookfield, Charlton, Spencer, Westborough and Worcester.
