8.0 Construction Techniques:

8.1Construction Trains:

The Grid infrastructure will be constructed using a number of unique train-like vehicles (AConstruction Trains@) which may approach one-half (2) mile in length. A Construction Train will consume only one lane of traffic, or perhaps a shoulder lane so that regular roadway traffic is not so adversely affected during construction of the Grid System. Materials will be delivered by trucks or other vehicles to both the front and rear cars of the Construction Train and distributed along the Construction Train. Much like a moving assembly line, the Construction Train will have on-board stations that are devoted to a particular part of the construction process. The Construction Train will have a solid barrier attached to its side, similar to a tall AJersey Wall@ between the crew and highway traffic flow. The Construction Train will be powered entirely by electric current diverted from the Grid Rail contacts.
