State Mill plans to add railroad trackNorth Dakota’s state Mill and Elevator is planning some improvements to its railroad facilities.
BISMARCK (AP) — North Dakota’s state Mill and Elevator is planning some improvements to its railroad facilities.
The mill ships bulk carloads of flour to customers. Mill manager Vance Taylor said the mill is replacing about 600 feet of track and installing about 450 feet of new track. The project will cost about $550,000.
Taylor said some of the track that’s being replaced is more than a century old. He said the work is necessary to prevent derailments.
The added track will allow the state-owned Grand Forks mill to store eight additional rail cars.
Taylor said it will save on car storage charges and improve the loading and cleaning of rail cars that are used to ship flour.
