I&O Gets Grant for Track Rehabiliation

The Indiana & Ohio Railway will receive a $525,768 grant from the Ohio Rail Development Commission to improve a siding in western Ohio.

The siding is located in Tremont City and the work also includes replacing switches at each end of the siding.

IORY will provide $283,106 in matching funds to bring the project investment to $808,974.

In a news release, ORDC said the project will reduce the time need for trains to enter and exit the siding, which now has manual switches. The process of moving in and out of the siding, which includes returning the switches to their original positions, can take up to a half hour. The new switches will be electronic.

ORDC also announced that it has awarded a $100,000 grant to Nova Tube & Steel for track rebuilding.

The $1.8 million project being undertaken near Delta is part of a $105 million new facility that will expand the Canadian company’s Midwest operations serving the automotive, rail, agriculture and construction industries.

APackaging Group will receive a $100,000 ORDC grant to build rail infrastructure at a 80,000-square foot plant under construction in Defiance.

A maker of customized packaging products for the cosmetics and skincare industries, APackaging  is building its first U.S. manufacturing facility.
