Tower 55 Rail Study
Provided QL “A” test holes on a variety of utilities crossing the BNSF railroad located at Tower 55 near downtown Fort Worth. A total of 30 test holes were excavated on a variety of utilities including water, sanitary sewer, gas, fiber optic communication & cable TV. Size of utilities uncovered ranged from 2” to 24”, and depths ranged from 2’ to 11’. This project required very specific coordination as to crew work times, positioning, and traffic control due to the work being within the regionally important rail crossing between the BNSF and UPRR and the 24/7 nature of the railroad commerce in the work area.
