SYSTEMWIDE UNDERCUTTING PROGRAM FOR BESSEMER & LAKE ERIE

Heavy traffic in bulk commodities leads to degradation and fouling of the ballast of the Bessemer & Lake Erie. The resulting muddy condition is being combatted with a systemwide undercutting program which will replace all fouled ballast over a 5-year cycle. The result will be increased traffic capacity since surfacing cycles will be increased from as often as once yearly and track occupancy time required by maintenance of way forces will be reduced.
