New Barge Unloading & Storage Facility

During the first phase of the project, a 44,000 ton cement storage dome with a cement transportation center was constructed. Construction also included a 1,000 SF building to house dome equipment, such as compressors and blowers.

Phases II and III incorporated a new barge unloading facility on the Mississippi River. In addition, a utility bridge was built, as part of phase II, to connect the unloading facility to the existing silo. Phase II also included upgrades to the existing silo.

Phase IV consisted of the completion of the storage dome and connection of the dome to the new loading system. Air transfer piping to relocate cement from inside of the dome to outside was installed.
