1) Lifting the track 3 in.
2) Restoring proper track line and surface.
3) Reshaping the ballast section.
The limits for this work are as shown in table D-5.
During the final design process the sidings serving the loading docks and magazine standards should be
checked to ensure that there is proper horizontal and vertical clearance between the track and the loading
platform. Any corrections that are required should be done during track surfacing.
Notes: 1) The Unit Cost estimate for surfacing
is ,560/Mile. Included in this cost is the
a) Raising the track 3 in.
b) Plowing new ballast back into the track to
fill in up to the tops of the ties.
c) Reshaping the ballast section.
d) Sweeping the track.
2) For Phase 1, estimate assumes no track raise through the track scale, and also assumes that track
will be raised to level of existing crossings in the sidings along the East Line (Buildings A - F).
3) For Phase 2, a 12-in. shoulder should be provided in the track washout areas along the Main Line.
13) Herbicide Application
Once the track work is complete, all track should be sprayed to prevent the growth of weeds in the ballast
