Washington State DOT provides $2 million for Columbia Basin Railroad project


The Washington State Department of Transportation recently signed an agreement to release about $2 million in state funds to the Port of Moses Lake to begin construction on Segment 2 of the Northern Columbia Basin Railroad project.

The project calls for extending existing Columbia Basin Railroad Co. tracks in Moses Lake by three miles to industrial property and businesses located on the east side of the port’s industrial park. The line would provide a rail link to customers located at the Grant County International Airport.

Excavation and construction work is scheduled to begin soon and be completed by June 2012.
