Six more sites have rail hub potential
Six new industrial locations have been awarded the BNSF railway company’s certified sites designation. Four of the new certified sites are the first for their state in Arizona, Minnesota, Mississippi and Missouri. Two new Illinois certified sites bring the state’s total count to four.
Certified sites are a part of BNSF’s premier parks, sites and transload programme. In order to be considered for the designation, sites must undergo a thorough analysis, which includes an evaluation of environmental and geotechnical standards, available utilities, site availability and existing and projected infrastructure. The newly-designated certified sites feature large areas ready for industrial development. (ben)
