New Haven Rail Yard Component Change Out Shop






O&G constructed the main shop and office complex for the New Haven Rail Yard which provides the major maintenance functions for Connecticut’s commuter rail fleet, as well as housing administrative and security functions.

This major facility consists of a maintenance shop with 13 car spots on 3 tracks with overhead cranes and floor lifts to allow easy removal of major car components (trucks, HVAC units, pantographs), support shops to repair and maintain the major car components, parts storage facilities, offices and welfare facilities for employees, a training facility, a security suite with the command center and MTA police offices, CTDOT offices, and a communications hub.

Site work included utility and track connections, driveways, security fencing, catenary, and illumination. The project included a Central Distribution Warehouse utilizing a high-density automatic storage and retrieval system (ASRS), located adjacent to the Component Change Out Shop.

Other projects completed at the New Haven Rail Yard include the Diesel Shop Reconstruction and Rail Yard Complex Improvements.
