BNSF Staples Subdivision, Little Falls to Darling Little Falls, MN

Meyer Contracting recently completed a project for BNSF in Little Falls, MN. This project consisted of installing over 250 helical pile and then building a load transfer platform over a soft area on the main line track. This area of track, which was installed last year by another contractor, had settled due to poor ground conditions. We were given a small and aggressive window to complete this project due to the need to remove the main line track to complete the work. BNSF had put in place a 100 hour shut down of their main line. Due to the importance of the main line to the railroad, there was absolutely no room for error. Our skilled TEAM worked around the clock for 4 ½ days and delivered the finished product to BNSF right on schedule. This one is special because it was the exact definition of a team effort. Everyone on site and in the office that was involved with this project played a key role in our ability to get it done on time and within budget. As with any project of this size, importance and with such an aggressive schedule there were several challenges along the way. Every challenge faced by our Team was met, ideas pooled, corrected and kicked to the curb. BNSF and Trans-Systems were extremely pleased with the results and they should be – these guys listed below put everything they had into this one.
