The planned $1.39 million rail project at the Great Plains Industrial Park is set to begin at the end of January or the first of February.

Northern Plains will be handling the railroad improvement project, which is being paid for with the help of a $779,211 Kansas Department of Commerce Building a Stronger Future grant. Great Plains is responsible for a 25% match. The Strengthening People and Revitalizing Kansas (SPARK) Executive Committee approved the grant for the rail improvements. The funds come from American Rescue Plan Act funding.
