For the first United States installation of a Schenck Process weighing system using weighing ties instead of a traditional weighbridge system, VanDemark & Lynch, Inc. served as the project’s consulting civil engineer. Their team of professional engineers and surveyors performed a site assessment to determine the best location for the scale, conducted a topographic survey, provided grading design and construction layout with a required one millimeter tolerance, and monitored construction to assure the design tolerances were met. The entire project was designed to allow the installation to be completed during an inflexible 72-hour rail closure window.
