Public Projects

Public Priorities

Conserving the public expenditure of resources, and preserving the railroads’ assets, current use, current operating speeds and capacity, and future use of the right-of-way in a safe manner are our primary objectives.

Project Management, Design, Plan Review, and Construction Phase Engineering

Public Project stakeholders and sponsors include state DOTs, county road departments, local agencies, third party utility companies, private developers, industries and private landowners.

Crouch Engineering typically works as the agency’s engineer, or as the liaison for railroads, and represents the client’s interests in minimizing impacts to operations, while preserving the integrity and functionality of the railroad assets.  Conserving the public expenditure of resources, and preserving the railroads’ assets, current use, current operating speeds and capacity, and future use of the right-of-way in a safe manner are our primary objectives. 

 

In some cases, Crouch Engineering is the project designer and project manager, performing the surveying, design, permitting, bid phase, and construction engineering services.  In other cases, Crouch Engineering is the manager of the public project tasks, including plan review, coordination with railroad and public officials, and construction observation.  

 

When a public project has the potential to impact your railway operations, you need an experienced consultant to ensure that your railway’s best interests are represented and protected. Due to our years of experience providing this level of service, we have developed working relationships with numerous public agencies and state DOT’s. Having a strong working relationship with these various entities allows Crouch Engineering to successfully maintain open communication on behalf of our clients.
