Maurer-Stutz, Inc. provided topographic survey and conceptual and final engineering design phase services for new scale, turnouts and railroad sidings.
The existing railroad spurs on-site were modified to accommodate the new shredder unit. Several short spurs were removed. One long spur was removed and rebuilt to allow loading from the shredder. Two other existing spurs were connected with two new switches and a scale was added. All improvements were worked into the existing site rail layout, which had tight geometry.
Site design included demolition, plan layout, profile layout, and section design. Construction responsibilities included bidding assistance, and staking of conceptual and construction layout.
Seneca Petroleum – Railroad Site Feasibility / Peoria, Illinois
Maurer-Stutz, Inc. provided topographic survey and conceptual engineering design phase services for new turnouts and railroad sidings.
Two new sites had conceptual designs to service new site expansion with new storage tanks. The designs were to maximize the storage of cars on the available site areas with constricted access. The down-river site achieved 1300 LF of clear storage length on 4 sidings, and the up-river site had over 6100 LF of clear storage on 8 sidings.
Site design included plan layout, coordinating layouts with proposed ADM power corridor, and planning to meet City of Peoria permitting requirements.
Hitchcock Scrap Yard – Railroad Access / Fulton County, Illinois
Maurer-Stutz, Inc. provided conceptual engineering design phase services for new turnouts and railroad sidings.
The conceptual study was to provide railroad access to the scrap yard. Three conceptual layouts were presented to the client and BNSF Railroad. The designs were laid out to meet the Owner’s needs and BNSF standards. Because of a lack of timely response from BNSF the Owner decided to put the project on long-term hold.
Site design included creating the base map with GIS, plan layouts with turn-outs, scale, rail sizing, and switches.
