If I recall correctly, we're talking four sidings: Pascack Juntion to Woodridge, Carlstadt,Should not be any issues. The CNJ was a two track mainline thru the area and all that is needed is to replace the ballast where the prior mainline track was removed. No surface utilities and the fiber buried a few years ago was off to the side, not where the track would be placed.
North Hackensack, and Nanuet. This averages out to $9.75 million per siding.
Yes, the Whitehouse siding does seem a little steep at $13 million. Especially when one considers that the RVL in this area already has a very good signal system with cab signals in this area, the siding will be relatively short, and the siding will be built in an area that does not need extensive grading (whereas the Nanuet siding does).
Is there bridgework or utility easements that must be addressed at Whitehouse?
