Cemex USA project

"On October 10th, it took four fire engines and one aerial ladder truck working through the night to extinguish the fire that burned the wood scaffolding at the top of two of the six silos. Fire fighters worked through the night to fight the flames raging more than 200 feet high." City of West Sacramento news release .

These huge concrete silos are in construction at the Port of Sacramento Industrial Park with the tallest topping out at 222 feet and 60 feet in diameter. Cemex USA will store bulk cement that's shipped here and then trucked to local construction sites. Below is the old plant that will be torn down during redevelopment of the riverbank area.
