Class I Rail

Ready The Engine For A Successful Rail Project

Ames has worked closely with Class I railroad companies for decades, expertly performing capacity improvement and expansion projects, grade separations, bridge replacement, and rehabilitative work.

From new construction to emergency response, Ames crews are accustomed to working safely alongside live tracks and executing critical work during tightly controlled track shutdowns. Our ability to self-perform Class 1 rail construction projects under aggressive schedules means that you can have confidence in the success of your project.
