The HSRB – II job site is continuing to perform work on site under modified site rules that take into account the latest recommendations from the CDC. Work will continue as long as operations managers feel that everyone on the job site can continue to do so safety.


Emory, JE Dunn (contractor) and HOK (architects) are working to keep moving forward but are are still assessing the short and long term impacts to the overall construction schedule resulting from the delays caused by our unusually wet weather, delays to the start of blasting resulting from reviews required by CSX railroad and now the COVID–19 Pandemic. Updated will continue to posted on this web site.
