CSX Completes 2015 Maintenance Jamboree

Employees installed 55,400 cross ties and 217,000 feet of rail, surfaced more than 100 miles of track, and restored and performed maintenance on several bridges and road crossings during the 2015 Maintenance Jamboree.

CSX announced July 9 that it successfully completed its 17th annual Maintenance Jamboree this week, describing it as "a track safety and maintenance blitz that completes months of rail, tie, signal and bridge work on key rail corridors in a single week. Employees installed 55,400 cross ties and 217,000 feet of rail, surfaced more than 100 miles of track, and restored and performed maintenance on several bridges and road crossings during the 2015 Maintenance Jamboree, which ran from June 29 to July 6 and involved 14 production teams, as well as engineering, signal, and bridge teams. Track work concentrated on two key southeastern corridors: between Shelby, Ky., and Spartanburg, S.C., and between Bostic and Monroe, N.C.

"The Maintenance Jamboree is a great testament to the dedication of our employees, who pull together to complete the work of many months in just a few short days to reduce the impact on our customers and communities," said CSX President and Chief Operating Officer Oscar Munoz. "During the Jamboree, and all year long, CSX is committed to investing in our network to provide safe and efficient rail transportation today and serve freight demand in the future."

This has been an annual event since 1999 for Jacksonville, Fla.-based CSX.
