The track section requires them to dig 40 feet under the rails to make the connection.I worked on some pipelines. It shouldn't disrupt the tracks at all. They'll dig a pit on both sides and they will have a boring machine jack a casing pipe underneath with an auger inside to remove the dirt. Once the casing is in place they can thread pipe through the casing. Probably the boring crew has been busy going under all the roads along the route and hasn't gotten there yet.

Basically, the rumor was that they'd have to rip the tracks and roadbed out to put the pipeline in. Conrail said they could do this but would have to rebuild any tracks that were removed. The construction company tried to tell off Conrail, and things just went downhill from there.
That's only what I've heard though.
Also, wasn't this pipeline supposed to go into Joint Base McGuire Dix? If so, what's the purpose of the pipeline?

Well i think i figured this new site out. I'm still hearing the same things, mid April start up. I also heard 20,000 loads of sand. Two jobs would be created one most likely out of Browns to taxi down to Manchester, the other would sign up in Bayonne Two sets of power and three sets of 50 cars. I also heard that our track dept says it can rehab the 4 miles of track in a weeks time.
