Our team worked with the City of Shelby and local Port Authority to secure $9.9 million funding dollars from the United States Department of Transportation through the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Discretionary Grant program. The TIGER grant is a competitive and merit-based process and provides a unique opportunity for the USDOT to invest in road, rail, transit, and port projects.
We performed the topographic survey, boundary survey, environmental clearance, design, and construction administration services for the development of the 120-acre Multimodal Hub Center which includes approximately three miles of new rail, three miles of roads, 27 acres of laydown area, 13,000 feet of wastewater main, and 13,000 feet of water main. The project was designed in accordance with BNSF Standards for Industrial Track Projects, Department of Environmental Quality requirements, and local road standards.
