Weston Tunnel Grade Separation

Weston Tunnel Grade Separation

HC Matcon achieved a significant milestone on the Weston Tunnel project, allowing for the GC to accelerate the schedule and make up for project delays. HCM mobilized 5 large diameter drill rigs and in seven and a half weeks installed 311 soldier piles (12,000 linear feet) drilled into bedrock up to 60 feet deep and approximately 620 filler piles (7,000 linear feet). The work was completed with an average of 30% downtime as drilling was carried out between two operational train tracks.
