Coast Rail, Inc. for the Port of Pasco
This 600-acre facility, located along the Columbia River, is home to manufacturing, warehousing, fruit and vegetable packing, assembly and distribution plants. The Big Pasco Industrial Center includes nearly 2 million square feet of improved buildings, and developable acreage for diverse industrial development, speculative development and build-to-suit arrangements. Each building is divided into four bays with each bay measuring 180 feet by 240 feet. Covered docks run full length on each side and handle both truck and rail shipments. The end docks are 12 feet wide and some buildings have end ramps for easy truck access to the end bays. Floors are rail car height and rail tracks serve each building. White Shield provided construction survey services for both track and road layout for this expansion phase of the project. The services included staking for rail alignments, base grade, sub-ballast, ballast, concrete ties, rails, frogs, points of switches, derailers, concrete panel rail crossings, and culverts and drain pipes. Additionally, White Shield provided a machine control model to the excavation contractor.
