Prairie State Energy Mining and Power Facility
The Prairie State Energy Campus (PSEC) is a coal-fired generating plant and adjacent underground coal mine about 50 miles southeast of downtown St. Louis.
RailWorks served as the general contractor through all phases of the $4.6 billion project. RailWorks performed the track work, railroad crossing and signal construction, furnishing all track materials, and managing the subcontractors performing the earthwork and bridge construction. Track work included constructing a total of 52,000 feet of new track, including a double-loop at the plant site’s four railroad crossings, and three railroad bridges.
A project of this size and complexity required extensive project management capabilities. RailWorks drew upon these capabilities to manage all phases of the project to ensure the multi-disciplined work was completed on time and to required specifications.
