L.B. Foster has provided new rail, relay rail, insulated rail joints, direct fixation fasteners and trackwork for the new rail link.
"L.B. Foster was chosen by contractor Skanska USA because we were able to deliver the complete scope of product requirements and project management for a large transit project such as The Tide," noted Greg Lippard, vice president within the Rail Products Group of L.B. Foster Company.
The Tide Light Rail System is scheduled to begin service along Norfolk's east/west transportation corridor in 2010.
