Soil-Sement dust control and road maintenance program solves intermodal terminal dust problems with a 50 percent reduction in annual maintenance costs.
Background. An intermodal yard was plagued by chronic wind-blown dust, the result of the daily cycling of yard tractors, forklifts, and container-handling equipment.
Problem. The action of constantly moving dust resulted in a surface that shifted, broke up, and sank.
Solution. Midwest eliminated these surface problems for the facility with a complete and cost-effective Soil-Sement® dust control and road maintenance program based on Good Construction Practices. Not only did the yard gain surface stability, it also enjoyed reduced dust, better safety conditions, and a 50% reduction in annual maintenance costs for grading and stone.
