Ducci has performed nearly half a billion dollars in Metro North Railroad, Amtrak, and Shoreline East Railroad projects – including every major section of main line Catenary replacement on the historic New Haven Line since 2000, extensive underground communications and signalization projects, cable plow operations, interlock construction, distribution substations, bridge construction, and major rail yard & facility construction and upgrades.

Our capabilities include all aspects of overhead electrical auto-tension catenary railroad systems construction and replacements, with all associated structural and support steel assemblies, the drilling and pouring of concrete caisson foundations, all aspects of the underground and aerial signalization and communication systems (including cable plowing), network infrastructure, DC substations, traction power, interlock construction, and all aspects of electrical bridge construction.

The Metro North New Haven Line is often referred to as the busiest commuter rail corridor in the nation.  With the extremely complex logistics and unique dangers and challenges brought by working in this environment (and others throughout CT and NY State), details, minutes and clearances are critical. Accordingly, work must be scheduled weeks (and often months) in advance, and daily work & safety plans must be meticulously planned and finitely executed.  

Below is a comprehensive list of Ducci’s experience in major railroad projects. Our experience speaks for itself – There is simply no other contractor currently more experienced than Ducci in performing this highly demanding and specialized electrical work safely and efficiently in the Northeast.
