Rail

We provide design and consulting services to safely maintain and expand rail networks across America.


When you work with Olsson on a rail project, you’re working with a national team of railroad experts who have performed substantial design work across the United States involving a wide array of railroad infrastructure.

We’ve gained a wide breadth and depth of knowledge through our extensive experience with both public and private clients including railroads, industrial park developers, industries, governmental entities, and more.

We’re a one-stop shop that can address all rail-related needs, including bridge and other structural design, civil/track design, hydrologic/hydraulic evaluations, geotechnical exploration and evaluations, surveying, utilities coordination/relocation, permitting, construction-phase services, emergency response services, public projects review, and technical support of litigation cases. 

If there’s an emergency, our experts are available 24/7 to respond and help restore rail track services quickly. We can provide emergency permitting services and assist in developing plans for replacement structures.  

We’re committed to providing high-quality services to successfully complete any size project.
