About Us

Alfonsi Railroad Construction Company is a family owned and operated business, serving the Detroit area since 1928.  We are currently in our fourth generation.

In brief, we are a fully-equipped railroad construction company who furnishes track maintenance and repair services on a 24 hour basis, as well as new track construction and road crossings. We maintain a substantial inventory and have access to an unlimited supply of track and crossing materials and accessories.  Over the years, we have worked for several of the major railroads including Conrail, CSX, Canadian National and Norfolk Southern.  We have also worked for numerous Shortline Railroads and other local companies including BASF Corporation,  Solutia,  Marathon Petroleum, and all of the major automotive companies just to name a few.

Alfonsi railroad is union affiliated and a member of MITA, NFIB, Railcet and CAM.  We are MDOT qualified and participate in the DISA and MUST programs.  We are also e-Railsafe certified as required by all servicing railroads and ON-TRACK SAFETY trained.  Employees receive OSHA & MSHA training as well as Red Cross First-Aid and CPR.  Background checks have been performed on every employee and we are enrolled in a continuing random drug testing program.


We take great pride in our reputation of service and look forward to working in the railroad industry for many more years to come.
