Backfilling May Temporarily Cause Additional Vibrations

Category: 
Update: 

CSX has begun backfilling some of the areas excavated for construction of the first new tunnel as part of the initial efforts to restore the area to pre-construction conditions. Engineering standards require soil to be compacted in place. The CSX team is using industry-standard equipment to complete that work, which includes large, heavy rollers that vibrate while they pass over the soil to be compacted. While residents who live closest to the construction area may feel these vibrations, the vibrations are not strong enough to cause damage to nearby structures. CSX continues to monitor the noise, vibration and air-quality adjacent to the site, and will take necessary steps to ensure that work remains within the established parameters for the project.
 
We will complete this work as quickly as we can, and apologize for any inconvenience this temporary situation may cause.
