A Pennsylvania state agency approved a $1 million grant to improve rail access at a former Metso Minerals property in Danville, Pa.
According to local news reports, the state Department of Community and Economic Development announced that the grant would be given to Montour County through Driving Real Innovation for a Vibrant Economy (DRIVE) — the economic development council serving Pennsylvania’s Montour and Columbia counties.
The project was among 106 proposals approved last week, according to DCED spokesman Michael Gerber.
The grant funding is available through the Multimodal Transportation Fund, according to the state Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).
Local news reports state that Montour County partnered and leased transportation assets with SEDA-COG Joint Rail Authority (JRA), an eight-county joint municipal authority, and DRIVE to enhance rail and truck access to the DRIVE industrial park.
The project aims to rehabilitate the site that is located on land that has been previously developed and is not currently in use, resulting in improved rail and truck access. Officials said the project involves repaving an entire roadway from Wall Street, moving and expanding a railroad crossing to two lanes, building a new access road, raising a rail bridge, carrying out drainage improvements and building a new rail turnout.
