Transportation & Engineering (T&E) Building Expansion/Second Yard Master Upgrade (Project No. 301-TBD)

The Yard Master currently is located in the T&E Building at the extreme west end of the yard with control of the turnouts in the 60’s yard.  Given the limited space in the current Yard Master office, expansion of the number of remotely controlled yard turnouts which is provided for in Project 0301-0129 – New Haven Yard Signal System, could not be handled in this facility.  Combined with the approximately six Transportation Department managers who would be displaced by transforming Union Station to TOD purposes, this project will add a story to the T&E and house a second Yard Master there.  To satisfy MNR’s concerns that the middle controlled portion of the yard is visible to the Yard Master, CCTV cameras would be installed on the Pedestrian Bridge and elsewhere to provide visual coverage of the yard.  This is another project that is not in the current NHRY Facilities Improvement Program Master Schedule, so the assumption is that the construction would commence at a time that clears Union Station for TOD and when a large portion of yard is reconfigured and ready for control.
