U.S. Navy Rail Work Begins

BALLSTON SPA – On Nov. 12, work crews began upgrading idled train tracks in the village that will be used for large shipments of materials for the U.S. Navy’s Kesselring training facility in West Milton.

Gene Terwilliger, a spokesman for the Naval Nuclear Laboratory, indicated by email that the rail work is scheduled to continue until Friday, Dec. 15, affecting tracks on either side of Eastern Avenue.

An additional two-day project to upgrade the Eastern Avenue crossing is expected in spring 2018, but Terwilliger said no firm dates have been set.   

In concert with village, county and state workers, Navy officials are preparing to receive shipments from Canadian Pacific Railroad related to a refueling of the S8G nuclear submarine prototype at Kesselring.

Since the 1950s, more than 50,000 U.S. Navy personnel have been trained at the West Milton facility. A separate, $180 million project will involve the installation of a new high-tech simulator of a submarine engine room by 2022.
