Preliminary and final site plans were prepared for the $8 million Shawnee
Road plant cardboard corrugating facility expansion.
The facility was
served by an industrial spur constructed in the 1930s, which consisted of
lightweight materials and offered limited loading dock space. The plant
expansion required a dramatic increase in both the size and quantity of roll
stock received by the facility, resulting in additional track loading and a
shortage of dock space. The existing spur was removed and a new single-track
spur was constructed from CSX Transportation's Lockport Industrial Track,
providing the capacity and flexibility required by the industry.
project features included:
Evaluation of the existing track and determination of components to be
salvaged for reuse in a relocated spur.
Evaluation of alternatives for providing multiple-dock access for unloading
up to 25 boxcars per week.
Horizontal and vertical alignments for the 1,460-foot spur to avoid impacts
to three wetland areas and meet geometric criteria required by CSX.
Evaluation of soil conditions and track/roadbed structural design for 286 K
loading on very weak supporting soils.
Specification of a railcar moving system to reposition loaded/empty cars.
Plan and specification preparation to obtain approval from CSX.
