PATCO LINDENWOLD YARD REHABILITATION
The project will upgrade the condition of approximately 25,000 linear feet of track, 49 yard switches, 750 feet of viaduct track, as well as signal, communication, and power improvements in the yard. The work will also include replacement of 2,200 linear feet of 2.4kV and 26.4kV cables along the south pole line adjacent to the Conrail tracks in Camden. These components are part of the original construction from PATCO's opening in 1969, as well as yard expansion in 1978. Temporary repairs have been performed in several areas and on-going maintenance is required. Many of the track elements have exceeded their life expectancy. Upon completion, the rehabilitated track is expected to reduce on-going maintenance efforts.
