Kelly-Hill Company completed some rehabilitation work on the Kansas City Zoo train tracks, which carries patrons on a train throughout the Zoo property. The project included removing and replacing approximately 330 linear feet of 20# curve rail on the high side of the track. We manually lined and leveled the tracks in this area and on 520 track feet at a secondary location. Lining and leveling ensures a safe and smooth ride.
