Railroad Rehabilitation Project Wrapping Up

October 31, 2012, 5:27 AM


A two-year, $28 million rehabilitation project on the state-owned, short-line rail system between Mitchell and Chamberlain is wrapping up.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says completion of the 61.6 mile rail project by the South Dakota Department of Transportation and the Dakota Southern Railway Company gives farmers more options for storing, hauling and selling their crops.

The project facilitated construction of the Gavilon Liberty Grain Terminal and created further economic development opportunities in the area.

Officials say the new elevator in Kimball will result in lower shipping costs, expanded markets and better prices for grain producers.

Dedication of the rail line is scheduled for Thursday.
