Maintenance Of Way
The first phase of the Northern Rail Extension (NRE) project is under way with construction beginning on a bridge over the Tanana River in Salcha, Alaska Railroad Corp.
(ARRC) officials recently announced.
Tomorrow, ARRC and government officials will attend a ceremony to mark the project’s start.
The multi-phased NRE project eventually will expand track infrastructure from North Pole/Eielson 80 miles southeast to Delta Junction. The project is expected to take three years to complete. The first phase calls for building a new bridge across the river and an associated levee. An environmental impact statement on the project was completed in 2010.
