Chronic Dust and Surface Maintenance Problems Solved at an Intermodal Facility

Chronic Dust and Surface Maintenance Problems Solved at an Intermodal Facility

In Dust Control, Soil-Sement®, Surface Management by Steve Vitale

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.
