The Cape main has been under rehabilitation by Barletta Engineering Heavy Division this spring with new ties / ballast / tree & brush clearing / replacing worn rails and should be finishing up sometime in June, then switching over to the Falmouth Secondary next. Over the past couple of years numerous crossings have been completely rebuilt on the Cape main / Falmouth Secondary as well. Probably won't see any increase in the 25-30 mph speed range unless they upgrade the rails and replace the NH 107 lb. rail which has been in place since 1915

These new bids are to continue completion of grade crossing rehabilitation & signal upgrades started a couple years ago on the various lines listed. Good to see Capital improvements continuing to replace deteriorated / obsolete infrastructure so trains can operate safely and up to speed
