Maintenance of the Alameda Corridor requires a very involved asset management process of inspection, prioritization, procurement, installation and repair.  The Corridor is heavily utilized by two-mile long trains that carry over 5 million equivalent 20-foot containers (TEU’s) annually. An expert group of professionals ensure that the 60 miles of railroad track, 212,000 linear feet of fencing, 51 emergency drop ladders, 94 emergency telephones, switches, control points, communication and signal systems are kept in efficient running condition. This is just a small list of the many features that are a part of the Alameda Corridor that must be maintained on a daily basis, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with an annual budget of $18.5 million.
