James Valley Grain
In 2015, CDI completed the Verona grain elevator/rail project for James Valley Grain located in North Dakota. The project was designed to be served by the RRVW for BNSF unit trains.
The Verona location was designed for three million bushels of internal capacity with high speed rail car loading of up to 120 car BNSF trains. The elevator projected that it would handle just under 20 million bushels upon completion. The site of this project was particularly challenging due to the poor soils and wet conditions. However, all construction was completed on time and within budget. CDI provided all engineering and permitting services for the site and railroad with the exception of the elevator itself. As part of the construction administration, CDI provided all construction observation, staking and quality control testing.
