Building materials company invests in rail
The building materials company Cemex USA is expanding its strong Southern California network with plans for a state-of-the-art, rail-served distribution terminal in Los Angeles and a new aggregate-loading system at its quarry in Victorville CA to accommodate the increase in construction projects across the region.
The new terminal, slated for completion in late 2017, is designed to receive aggregates transported by rail from the Cemex White Mountain quarry in Victorville, approximately 160 km away.
An automated load-out system is planned, as well as updates to the rail line’s infrastructure and several other enhancements to the quarry in Victorville. (ben)
