Phase II Construction Resumes

Finally, after months of rain delays, Phase II construction resumes at the Museum of the American Railroad.  Ironically, excessive rain and standing water have prevented contractors from installing the additional storm drainage network for over 11 weeks.  Adequate storm drainage is essential, as it protects the Museum's long-term investment in track and other facilities.  With locomotives weighing in excess of 1 million pounds, storm water must be carried away from the site to prevent saturation of substrate which prevents settling and rotting of cross ties over time. 

Frisco-based FCS Construction is generously providing labor and services on a donation and at-cost basis to install nearly half-a-mile of storm drainage pipe and related materials.  FCS's services follow a generous contribution of site grading and preparation back in 2014.  Additionally, Vulcan Materials has donated nearly 700 tons of embedment rock for the french drain portion of the project.  These two companies have come together in support of the Museum in an act of civic pride to make the next round of Phase II construction possible. 


Transportation of the embedment rock was generously provided by the City of Frisco’s Public Works Department.  These most recent contributions of materials and services are in addition to the drainage pipe provided at cost to the Museum by Advanced Drainage Systems (ADS) and Longhorn, Inc.  Lunsford Associates of Arlington has also contributed engineering services to the project. 

Storm drainage installation is expected to require 3-4 weeks to complete.  This work will be followed by the installation of flex-base material in preparation for construction of exhibit tracks 6, 7, and 8 later this summer.  The flex-base material, some 6,000 tons, will be provided on a donation basis by Vulcan Materials.  This will be a significant contribution to the Museum’s Phase II construction project.
