Railroad Survey for Metro-North

Metro-North Railroad Survey for Tie Dapping, Multiple Bridge Crossings

Kevin Franklin was the Instrument Person for detailed topographic railroad survey on approximately 25 railroad bridges between New Haven and Greenwich, Connecticut. This project was initiated with railroad safety training to obtain Metro-North safety certifications. It also involved daily coordination with railroad personnel (flagmen). The project was intended to support design work for dapping of the timbers and included precision locations on bridge features such as ties, rails, stringers, splice plates, and back/wing-walls.
