Union Pacific And CenterPoint Building $370 Million Container Terminal In Joilet

Construction is underway on a 785 acre rail/highway container terminal at the Union Pacific property in Joliet, near I-55 and I-80, with general contractor Ragnar Benson already putting down over 18 miles of railroad tracks. The fast track construction project is expected to create 1,200 construction jobs between now and June 2010.

William Charles construction is the site work contractor, and it will be placing 470,000 tons of ballast underneath the 10 rail tracks in the project. The facility will ultimately handle half a million containers a year.
