Signal, Communication, & Power Cable Installation

Railway Improvement Project

Railway Improvement Project

Scope

Michels installed 17 miles of electric and signal cables, conduits and splice boxes in New Jersey. The cable and conduits were installed and completed in two steps using rail plow operations. The first pass involved the placement of two 3-inch conduits that will carry 9,600 volt electrical cables. On the second pass, six conduits and cables were installed simultaneously. Splice boxes were set into previously excavated holes, at which time conduit was installed and prepared for future wire installation. The work was completed along a section of four tracks, three of which were live and in-use by high-speed commuter trains during construction.

  • Michels installed 17 miles of electric and signal cables, conduits and splice boxes along Amtrak rail lines from Trenton to North Brunswick, NJ.
  • The Michels crew opened trenches over culverts and utility crossings before the rail plow work started.
