27 Freight Trains
Prior to the completion of this project, trains departing Proviso Yard on the original single track would block the IHB main lines, preventing other trains from moving through the area at the same time. The second connection on the new rail bridge allows trains to maintain active operation on the IHB at the same time trains are entering and departing Proviso Yard, which greatly increases capacity.
Scope of Work
This project added new track on a new bridge to create a second connection between the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad (IHB) and Union Pacific’s Proviso Yard.
