East Chicago Rail Terminal (ERRT) & Transload Yard

East Chicago, IN

The ERRT project consisted of 21,000 TF of new construction, including 20 new wood tie turnouts and steel tie body tracks. Railroad Consultants executed the entire project from the design to the surveying, to the material handling and coordination and then on to the complete build-out and surfacing of the facility.  ERRT was completed in 2021 in just under 4 months, which was ahead of schedule and under budget.  The completion of this project emphasized Railroad Consultants’ innovation in design, pre-production and planning, as well as its ability to provide exceptional workmanship in new track construction.
