Abstract:

ACBL Western, Inc. proposes to construct and operate a terminal facility with capabilities for transferring low-sulfur western coal from unit trains to river barges. The terminal will be located on the west bank of the Mississippi River in St. Louis, Missouri just north of the southern outlet of the Chain of Rocks Canal. The facility will occupy approximately 45 acres of presently unused industrially-zoned land between the Burlington-Northern Railroad Freight yard and Hall Street. The terminal will include a rotary car dumper, coal storage piles 500,000 tons and an ancillary stackerreclaimer, plus conveyors to carry the coal across the railroad yards and the floodwall to a barge loading facility located on the bank of the river.
