CEE 411 Field Visit to CSX’s Bedford Park

April 2016: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s CEE 411 class (titled Railroad Project Planning and Design) traveled to Chicago on Saturday April 9, 2016 to visit CSX’s Bedford Park facility. This class focuses on the planning, design, and construction management of large capital projects. As a part of the field visit they toured Bedford Park to see what a large capital project looks like once it is constructed and operational. This provided a firsthand close up loop at an operational project and allowed the students to ask questions that were fielded by Matt Hiller of CSX Intermodal.
