The Main Bergen Connection Project for the Secaucus Transfer Program involved Construction of a new Connector Track between the Bergen Line and the Main Line west of the Secaucus Transfer. The project included the rehabilitation of the entire structure for deteriorated steel.  This structure had four major lines for NJ Transit and the work was performed while maintaining heavy NYC train traffic on the bridge structure. Removal of a 20’ x 110’ span length while NJ Transit maintained the existing three lines in service.  This process was conducted while a Norfolk Southern line was active below.  In addition to the removal and installation of the new steel, which was fabricated by RCC Fabricators, Railroad removed and installed new bearings and pads throughout the entire structure including the active NJ Transit track.  Railroad Construction also designed a support system to carry the load of the entire structure so that the bearings could be removed and new pads and bearings could be installed during active track time.  The project also called for the installation of 2 additional Mainline Tracks through the Transfer Station.  The work included removal of 7,800 TF of track, installation of 28,540 TF of track, installation of 2,400 LF of viaduct structure through the Meadowlands, installation of 860 pipe piles; 18-inch dia. X 85 feet long, installation of precast concrete pile caps and box beams, installation of 3-feet and 6 feet diameter caissons, 65’ deep, installation of 457,000 LBS of reinforcing steel, lead abatement, structural steel repairs, painting the existing bridge structure, installation of 14,000 SF of temporary sheeting and tie backs, and construction of a new bridge structure, pile supported box beam deck.  Start of Construction 10/2001 – Completion 08/2003.
