Port of Los Angeles Berth Reconstruction

Shimmick developed an intermodal container transfer facility (ICTF), which included demolition of the existing Pier A rail yard; grading; placing surcharge; and constructing new water, sewer, storm drain, electrical, and communications utilities, some with steel casings.

Shimmick also installed trackwork, railway signal equipment, a train in motion system, switches, sliding derails, bumper posts, crane rail foundation and crane rail, high mast poles and fire hydrant assemblies. Additional work included installing optical character recognition portal, turnover anchor pit, and compressed air system; a secondary gate with truck scales, gate arms, and concrete pedestals; a compressor building, guard booth, and customs/border protection office building; concrete and asphalt concrete pavement; and signage, striping, and fencing on k rail.

Shimmick self-performed nearly 90 percent of the track installation, which included ballasted track work and special track work, crane rail foundations, crane rail for rail mounted gantry cranes and crane stops.
