When completed, the 74,600-sq.-ft. terminal will fea- ture a new warehouse that can store 43,000 tons of cement and load up to 80 trucks per day. Cement will be delivered to the Bronx from McInnis' plant in Port-Daniel—Gascons, Quebec. A barge-mounted ship unloader travelling between New York and Providence will be used to pneumatically transfer the cement into the warehouse. The facility will set a new standard for development in the New York City Harbor, featuring 24/7 operations to best serve its local market. A rooftop solar array will reduce strains on the local power and a fully enclosed truck loadout will mitigate dust. The around-the-clock operations in conjunction with the terminal proximity to concrete plants will dramatically reduce truck traffic and associated emissions in the Bronx, noted McInnis. In the future, the area is expected to see more than $60 billion in infrastructure projects and another $7.7 billion in Superstorm Sandy repairs, creating a much-needed demand for concrete. The Bronx termi- nal will allow McInnis customers to participate in these projects while reducing their transportation costs and environmental impact.
