Construction at the project location has started and Unitrac has begun shipping material to the site. The majority of the panelized turnouts that will be supplied by Unitrac will be on wood ties and a portion will be on steel ties. The Northwest Ohio terminal will be built and operated by Evansville Western Railway Inc. of Mt. Vernon, Ind., an affiliate of CSX Corp.
"Having an opportunity to work this closely with EVWR on a time-sensitive project of this magnitude allows Unitrac to showcase its commitment to providing high-quality specialty trackwork products in a timely manner," said Ray Lambert, President of Unitrac.
