When potholes appear in the rail yard's parking lots or a walkway or ramp needs to be resurfaced, you want a contractor that can do the work on time and within budget. But you also need someone who is qualified and pre-approved to work on a rail yard to ensure the security and safety of your normal operations are maintained.
Hulcher Services performs asphalt work, pothole repair and paving work for railroads and industry. Some of the tasks we perform as part of asphalt work include:
Asphalt projects can be as simple as patching a pothole in a parking lot or as complicated as resurfacing a stretch of road or building a large storage area with asphalt pads and walkways.

|Case Study - Forklift Ramp and Parking Lot Asphalt
The diesel shop’s loading dock allowed forklifts to bring in palletized shipments of heavy cargo such as traction motors from semi trailers to the storage sheds. Unfortunately, the shop’s dock ramp had a rough, uneven surface that added to wear and tear on forklifts and increased the risk for mishaps during transport. Additionally, the surrounding parking lots had several cracks and potholes that needed attention.
|Project Snapshot - Hulcher Crew Performs Asphalt Work at Rail Yard
A 40-foot stretch of road between the tracks and the trim tower at a rail yard was badly pitted with potholes, and needed repair. The railroad needed a qualified railroad contractor to perform the asphalt road repair close to the tracks.
|Case Study - Railroad Crossing Construction
A chronic problem for one Midwestern community was the old and worn-out railroad crossing in the center of town. The ride over the tracks was always a bumpy one and extremely hard on the vehicles that crossed it on a daily basis. The railroad was adding a siding nearby and decided they would renovate the railroad crossing at the same time. Following a bidding process, Hulcher Services Inc. was chosen to lead the railroad crossing construction project, which included removing existing crossing, grading, installing new track panel and laying asphalt.

The railroad tore down an old building at their yard, opening up a large area to use for outdoor storage. With the demolition completed, the railroad needed a contractor to grade and prepare the space and put in asphalt roads, pads and paths for their Materials Department to use.
