The Indiana Rail Road Company (INRD) has begun the first phase of its intermodal expansion project, a three-part initiative with an expected completion date in 2023.  

INRD recently acquired an additional 12 acres adjacent to the current lot that will more than double the existing container yard footprint, allow a generous amount of incremental container parking capacity and flexibility and include an onsite chassis depot, INRD officials said in a news release.

The initial phase involves ground preparation, installation of concrete inbound-outbound traffic lanes with an innovative kiosk gate system for expedited handling. Phase II and III will complete the high security fencing, establish rear access service roads, installation of low energy consumption lighting, and construction of two new loading pad tracks to further improve efficiencies.   

INRD's Senate Avenue Intermodal Terminal in Indianapolis opened in 2013 and moved 1,450 containers in its first year. This year, the terminal is projected to move more than 40,000 containers and recently began a new grain export operation with International Feed.
