Get ready for AREMA’s virtual conference

The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association’s (AREMA) annual conference is virtual again this year. The five-day event offers multiple sessions on topics including track, structures, communications, engineering and maintenance-of-way.

A presentation by Jennifer Sunley, Hanson’s natural resources discipline manager; Michael Sondles, P.E., from HDR; and Ruth Brown, P.E., from Norfolk Southern Corp., will delve into the environmental permitting challenges surrounding a newly listed threatened species that was encountered during a bridge replacement. “Navigating Permitting of Newly Listed Threatened Species, Big Sandy Crayfish, for Replacement of Norfolk Southern Bridge N-462.01,” is scheduled for 1:45–2:15 p.m. EST Sept. 30. Jennifer wrote about the project on this blog — check out “Small crayfish delays rail bridge replacement in West Virginia.”

Find out more about the virtual conference, which will be held Sept. 26–30, at the conference website.
