Green Line D Track & Signal Replacement

Project Description:

Signal and Track Replacement between Reservoir Station and Riverside Station along the  Green Line’s D (Highland) Branch.

(2) providing two new CIH’s for the Reservoir and Grove Street interlockings,

(3) providing approximately 6.5 miles of new wayside aerial cable and cable support system on existing catenary poles,

(4) providing all wayside signals, pushbuttons, power and hand-throw switch machines

Track improvements consist of the renewal of approximately 24,000 feet of mainline track, replacement of special trackwork, platform edge reconstruction,and grade crossing reconstruction.
