Indiana Rail Facility Opens

A $2 million commercial rail cross-dock facility has opened in Washington, Indiana, with the 18,0000-square foot structure being the first rail expansion in the city in decades.

The new facility is part of a new 40,000 square feet shell building. The  $10 million project included the shell building and wastewater and electrical infrastructure.

The facility is located near the interchange of U.S. Route 50 and Interstate 69.

The cross-dock facility will allow the direct loading of semi-trailers and railroad freight cars.

It is located on the Cincinnati-St. Louis line of the former Baltimore & Ohio. CSX now owns the line, much of which is out of service in Illinois.

Officials say the cross-dock is expected to meet logistics needs and increase efficiencies for regional companies in the area, including Grain Processing Corporation and Alliance Barrier Films.

They also hope that it will encourage expansion of companies with specialty needs in transportation, logistics and distribution.
