Lee Walker, foreman for the crew working at the site, said Tubbys Construction is a sub-contractor for Norfolk Southern. Walker said the crew is "replacing the crossties under the track here."
According to Walker, the work on this portion of the track - from Sandersville to Heidelberg - has been estimated to take about two weeks.
"We are doing all the crossings here in Sandersville and we will go up the track to crossings in Heidelberg," Walker explained. "We have been working here this week, and expect to complete this job by the end of next week."
