Project Details

Peltz mixed and paved 8,725 CY of 17.5″ and 15″ RCC pavement for the Rail – Truck Transload facility. Despite the cement shortage, Peltz battled to complete the project in ten paving days, averaging almost 900 CY per day. To meet the challenge with cement supply, ┬áPeltz staged four pigs on-site to provide flexibility for the cement haulers.

RCC was selected for this project as a bid alternative to 15″ and 17.5″ of reinforced concrete pavement, resulting in a cost savings of around 20%.

The Rail-Truck Transload facility will provide more efficient freight movement and aid in decongesting the interstate system.
