Synthesis of Railroad Engineering Best Practices in Deep Seasonal Frost and Permafrost Areas

Project Sponsors: 
University of Alaska Fairbanks

Michigan Tech is conducted investigations related to the proposed rail link from Alaska to the rest of the North American rail system through northern Canada. This project investigated the literature and experiences of the existing and planned rail systems at deep seasonal and permafrost areas around the world and used the findings to develop recommendations for future investigations and project development of the proposed Alaska-Canada rail link.
