Century Provides Concrete Pedestrian Crossings for Light Rail Transit Agency  

Century Group Inc. manufactured precast concrete pedestrian crossings for a major light rail transit agency on the east coast. Century Group mobilized their field technical team to take "as-built” field measurements at the pedestrian crossing locations to ensure that the panels fit perfectly in each location.

The lagless pedestrian crossings featured an ADA compliant non-skid surface and flangeway filler at the light rail transit passenger station loading areas. Century Group's onsite field technician Chris Gaudet commented, "This project had many unique features for the pedestrian crossings due to the fact that the track was direct fixation and the light transits passenger station platforms varied in distance from the rail at different locations. Our team was able to work with the contractor to ensure that each crossing fit perfectly at each location.”
