VIADUCT TO CARRY RAILROAD TRACKS MOUNTED ON PADS IN CONCRETE DECK

Techniques employed by New York State for replacing 11 Long Island Railroad grade crossings with viaducts that have ballastless, tieless tracks on prestressed concrete I-beams spanning up to 104 ft are presented. The all-concrete design is expected to reduce maintenance costs. The three viaduct sections each have a pair of single-track structures. An elevated platform runs between the tracks at stations.
