Construction will be completed in two phases. Phase I will involve the construction of a 40,000 ton cement storage dome with an adjoined cement transportation center. In addition, a 1000 square foot building also will be built to house equipment. Phase II of the project will include the construction of the new barge unloading facility on the Mississippi River. A utility bridge will be constructed to connect the new unloading facility to the storage dome.
Construction for Phase I is scheduled for completion in late 2008, while Phase II is targeted for completion in May 2009.
EDG Consulting Engineers, based in Columbus, Ohio, is the engineering firm for the project.
