The Susquehanna River Bridge is a part of Amtrak’s implementation strategy for the next generation of high-speed rail passenger service from New York to Washington D.C.

HNTB is providing conceptual and preliminary engineering, NEPA screening and final design of Amtrak’s Susquehanna River Bridge. This heavily-traveled structure is essential to the northeast corridor, servicing not only Amtrak, but also local trains for the Maryland Area Rail Commuter system as well as Norfolk Southern Railroad.

HNTB produced conceptual-level designs and feasibility schemes during the first part of the project, and is currently preparing final design of the preferred alternative that was determined
during the NEPA process. Track, signal, OCS, power, inspection and structures design, estimating and constructability elements are included in the project deliverables.
