Reading & Northern Route 61 Bridge
J. Mikulsky Railway Supply was pleased to partner with Reading and Northern Railroad on the Route 61 bridge project. Steve Allen Balthaser, VP of Facilities for the railroad, has the following to share about the project in their most recent issue of the R&N Magazine: “The Route 61 bridge was our most interesting and engaging project. We had to have the traffic diverted for several months, work to be done could only utilize the area closed to traffic (one lane), and train traffic had to be restricted at certain times.”
J. Mikulsky Railway Supply was proud to be able to supply traffic cones, sand bags, and the signs needed for this important project.

A Joint Effort: Cos Cob Miter Rail Replacement
As a result of our NY DBE/WBE certifications, J. Mikulsky Railway Supply Co. was awarded orders totaling $500,000 for track Materials to be used in this project. Please feel free to read about this project below or click here to see a copy of the original article.
The Cos Cob Bridge over the Mianus River in Greenwich, Conn., functions as a linchpin in two passenger rail systems: Metro-North Railroad’s New Haven Line and Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor (NEC).
Cos Cob is the busiest of the five movable bridges on the New Haven Line that the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) owns and Metro-North maintains. The other four are the Walk Bridge over the Norwalk River in Norwalk, the Saga Bridge over the Saugatuck River in Westport, the Devon Bridge over the Housatonic River between Milford and Stratford and the Peck Bridge over the Pequonnock River in Bridgeport. CTDOT estimated in 2015 that a failure of one of these bridges, all more than 100 years old, would result in an added 125,000 daily commuters on the regions already congested highways.

CAMDEN, N.J. – People who commute between southern New Jersey and Philadelphia are in for a rough summer.
Work on the tracks and electrical systems on the PATCO Speedline will mean a less frequent schedule for the train line used by 40,000 per day and closed car lanes on the Ben Franklin Bridge, which carries trains – and 100,000 cars daily – over the Delaware River.
“I have no choice but to catch the train because the parking is horrible and expensive over there,” Juanita King, who works as a scheduler at Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Hospital, said before she hopped on her train recently at Camden’s Ferry Avenue Station, a popular place for park-and-ride customers from Camden and Gloucester counties.
