The General Mills Pillsbury plant in Murfreesboro, Tennessee produces dough products (biscuits, croissants, cookies, turnovers) for consumer baking. An expansion of this plant created the need to double the amount of flour needed on a daily basis from 2.2 million pounds/day to 4.4 million pounds/day. The existing indoor off loading facilities were adequate for unloading but the existing rail facilities were not capable of supporting the number of rail movements needed to supply the process. Both truck and rail traffic required access to the unloading facilities.
