A Look Back at the Union Pacific Dallas Intermodal Terminal (DIT)

A Look Back at the Union Pacific Dallas Intermodal Terminal (DIT)

It's been a decade since one of the largest internal curing paving projects in the United States kicked off with the placement of over 250,000 cubic yards of concrete paving. Dubbed the Union Pacific Dallas Intermodal Terminal (DIT), this unique project remains an excellent testament of lightweight aggregate's ability to improve the durability, strength, and quality of concrete paving.

Lightweight Aggregate and ICC Prove Their Value on Louisiana Bridge

Lightweight Aggregate and ICC Prove Their Value on Louisiana Bridge

From an engineering perspective, Mitch Wyble really likes what he sees when he assesses the value of internally cured concrete (ICC), a concrete mixture where a portion of the fine aggregate is replaced with similar sized prewetted lightweight aggregate (LWA). Wyble first encountered ICC a few years ago while serving on the Technical Committee of the Concrete and Aggregates Association of Louisiana (CAAL).

Lightweight Aggregate Provides Performance and Design Flexibility for Breakwater

A 1,440 foot-long floating concrete breakwater was constructed in the state of Washington using lightweight aggregate produced at Boulder, Colorado. The $8 million breakwater project was designed for the Port of Bremerton Marina to attenuate wind driven waves and ferry wakes. Additionally, it was designed to upgrade the marina’s boat capacity, and enlarge the waterfront public space extending from an upland public park area.
