Charlotte Area Transit System CATS

Client/Owner: Charlotte Area Transit System

Location: Charlotte, NC

Project Completion Date: September 2007

Project Duration: Two Years


Delta Railroad Construction installed the track work for the new South Corridor Project in Charlotte, NC with Archer Western (General Constractor).  Construction started in the downtown area and proceeded to I-485 approximately 9 miles south of town.  The project challenges included constructing 18 public road crossings through the streets of Charlotte.  The project included 2 miles of aerial construction which contributed to the tight construction schedule due to delays of bridge structure construction.  Delta was able to mobilize in different areas of the project and maintain the milestone schedules.
