Working closely with Land O’Lakes Business Development Services, CDI was engaged to assist in site evaluation and ultimately to design a green field shuttle elevator for Landmark Services Cooperative in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin. This facility has the capacity to store up to 2.5 million bushels and load trains of 110 cars in less than eight hours. Our staff worked closely with the Canadian Pacific (CP) Railroad to design access to the site on a double main track that serves CP freight trains as well as Amtrak traffic. Moving over one million cubic yards of earth to construct this facility, CDI staff was also on site providing construction staking and project oversight over the two year construction period.
This project also included a traffic study on State Highway 16 and design of turning lanes. All highway design was coordinated with the Wisconsin DOT. Project administration consisted of not only technical assistance on all aspects of the project, but providing expertise at meetings with compliance and jurisdictional authorities.
