TGB Group has been selected to design and build Isomeric’s track expansion project at the McMahon Wrinkle Industrial Park in Big Spring, Texas. We began working with Isomeric to identify locations for a track expansion to support the growth in their business. Our team provided consulting and conceptual design services to help determine the best location. Isomeric then selected us to manage the entire process.
We’re providing survey, design, bidding services, construction management and on-site construction observation services for the project, which entered the design phase this month. We expect construction of the track expansion project to be completed early in the second quarter of 2019.
TGB Group has been the civil engineer of choice for rail projects in Big Spring for many years. We recently completed a large expansion for the Big Spring Railroad’s (BSR) Tarmac Yard and the design of Alor Trucking’s new transloading facility. Several other rail expansion projects are slated for 2019 that will further expand the Big Spring Railroad’s ability to store railcars for customers as well as transload railcars for customers in need of these services.
Big Spring Rail Systems, Inc. maintains and operates approximately six miles of rail line in Howard County, Texas, over trackage owned by the City of Big Spring.
BSR was established in August 2012 as part of an economic development project by the Big Spring Economic Development Corporation. It was created to initiate opportunities to transport and distribute product for customers, promoting the accessibility and utilization of existing rail service that was not previously possible. BSR is headquartered in West Chester, Pa. The firm interchanges traffic with Union Pacific railroad and is located just west of its Big Spring yard.
Texas state and local officials have recognized the economic growth that coincides with improving transportation infrastructure. These investments put a focus on transportation projects while benefiting the community and stimulating economic growth. Big Spring has been referred to as the “crossroads of west Texas” due to it’s being the only city in the western portion of the state with access to interstate highways going north, south, east and west. In addition to existing highways and an airpark, BSR is building on this with the inclusion of rail service.
