Ken Pidgeon Presents Technical Paper at RETC 2011
Ken Pidgeon Present Technical Paper at RETC 2011 Conference in San Francisco
Ken, along with Marco Boscardin, presented a technical paper entitled: “Burlington Tunnel Emergency Repairs: A Case History” at the Rapid Excavation & Tunneling Conference on June 24th in San Francisco. Marco is a long-time friend and former colleague of Ken’s. The third author is Bill Riehl of Rail America who did not attend the conference.
The technical paper described an emergency stability condition that occurred when the tunnel was being rehabilitated in 2008. ECI was subsequently hired by Rail America (owner of New England Central Railroad) to design and construct the emergency repairs. ECI’s work included investigation, design, permanent stability improvements, construction of a new “rigid” track structure, grouting, track approach work, and tunnel portal improvements.
