Performance of Work:
C-2 Construction, Inc. constructed 2 separate railhead projects under one single firm fixed price contract for the IDAHO ARMY NATIONAL GUARD. The Project was located near the Orchard town site approx. 16 miles South East of Gowen Field, Boise Air Terminal, Boise ID. The project included but was not limited to construction of two rail spurs converging into one rail line leading into the Mates Base site. The rail line leads into a (4) track rail yard with tracks of varying distances.
C-2 Coordinated with Union Pacific Railroad to make the connection to the main rail line for each spur that is constructed. Seven miles of rail spur was constructed on the site including each of the 4 lines in the rail yard. The rail yard consists of includes multi-level ramp with associated foundations for loading mobile equipment onto rail cars. This project also included the construction of a short span rail bridge that the rail line travels over in two locations.
We constructed an extensive roadway network, a 100 ton truck scale, a helipad with associated lighting, storm water drainage network, grading, and area lighting around rail yard.
Work also included construction of a new 9640 Sf.
