L.B. Foster Co. of Pittsburgh has received a $2.7 million contract to supply a wide ranging package of rail products to the Allegheny County Port Authority Light Rail System.

 

L.B. Foster is providing rail fasteners, track work and new rail for construction of the 1.2 mile North Shore Connector. This light rail transportation corridor will travel in two bored tunnels beneath the Allegheny River to connect Pittsburgh's city center (Gateway Subway Station under Stanwix Street) with North Shore neighborhoods and attractions.

 

The company is also supplying 470 tons of new 115-lb rail and track work items.

 

Final delivery of L.B. Foster materials is scheduled for late 2010 and train service should begin in 2011.
