The purpose of the Durham East End Connector project (NCDOT U-0071) is to provide a direct connection between the Durham Freeway (NC 147) and Miami Boulevard (US 70) while improving access to I-85 and I-40. To facilitate this connection, a temporary railroad bridge was built to serve rail carriers while the original is demolished/reconstructed. The TGS team, working for Norfolk Southern (NS), reviewed track work and bridge plans for the temporary railroad underpass structure, the replacement of the underpass bridge as well as the highway bridge over the NS rail yard. TGS provided CEI services for Norfolk Southern on this portion of the $142M project.
