Port gets grant for two improvement projects
Published: December 27,2011
BURNSVILLE — The Yellow Creek Port Authority has received a pair of state grants for a pair of improvement projects at the Northeast Mississippi Waterway Industrial Park.
Officials tell the Daily Corinthian the rail spur project is the first step in connecting the nearby Norfolk Southern line with the barge terminal. The first phase is expected to be completed prior to June 2013.
The port authority also will build a 20,000-square-foot building with the capacity for the installation of a 20-ton crane near the barge terminal in the park. The building is slated to be complete by June of 2012. The building will be designed to be easily expanded or modified to meet the needs of any potential industrial client.
