Project Description 

RailWorks constructed the track infrastructure for the $68 million refinery at Seneca, IL, one of seven biodiesel refineries Nova Biosource Fuels plans to construct through 2010.

Project Scope 

RailWorks constructed 6,000 feet of track and installed four #8 turnouts, one #10 turnout, one double switch point derail, and four rubber grade crossings. RailWorks coordinated with CSX, the servicing railroad, to address requirements for the facility’s track infrastructure.
