Moundsville Rail Expansion, Phase 3
Owner: Williams Energy | Location: Marshall County, WV | Project Cost: $2.8 Million | Status: Ongoing
*This work was performed by The Lane Construction Corporation, an affiliate company to Lane Power & Energy Solutions, Inc.
Williams Energy is expanding the existing rail car loading facilities at their Moundsville facility in Marshall County, WV. Lane is responsible for excavation of the site around the existing facilities, installation of drainage systems, erosion/sediment control, jack and bore installation (under the CSX railroad tracks), retaining walls, and limestone roadways, among others.
The first several weeks of the project will include the mobilization of equipment by Lane, installation of erosion controls and demolition. After these items have been accomplished the excavation will commence beginning with the topsoil stripping followed by the mass excavation. Upon completion of the mass excavation the drainage work will begin including the jack and bore operation.
The retaining wall will be constructed concurrently with the drainage operation. Upon completion of the drainage and retaining wall the cement stabilization will be done by a subcontractor followed by the final placement of aggregate and subballast. Final cleanup and seeding will complete the project. The work will be done in coordination with CSX railroad.
