Included in the estimate for each phase is an allowance for 400 ties in the loading tracks (and the
containerization terminal on the East Line to be done in Phase 1) and for 100 ties that drop during
surfacing and are in too poor a condition to be respiked.
Exact tie counts should be made when preparing the final plans.
Number of Ties
Note: Unit Cost estimate = /tie.
2) The tie spacing at the installation averages 20 in., which equals 3,168 ties/mi.
7) Respace Ties
During this remedial action, the many skewed and misspaced ties will be properly repositioned. This work
also includes raising ties that dropped during the track raise and replacing occasional defective ties that
cannot be re-spiked.
This estimate covers labor and machine costs for tie respacing.
Note: Unit Cost estimate = 00.mi.
2) For Phase 2, tie respacing not required on Main Line from Sta. 154+00 to Sta. 200+00. This work is
also only needed over approximately half of the North Line.
8) Tighten and Replace Track Bolts/ Drive High Spikes
