In a joint venture with Gallagher & Burk, Inc., Balfour Beatty provided design-build services to turn a closed Army base into part of a thriving transportation center on the West Coast.

Construction of the 35-acre railyard took place on the eastern half of the former Oakland Army Base, which was decommissioned in 1999. The new railyard now provides 18,000 track feet and 19 turnouts as a place for the storage and inspection of trains near the busy Port of Oakland. The project scope included grading, paving, drainage, various other landside improvements and new track installation.
