November 13, 2013

Big Spring’s Economic Development Corp. is going into the rail business — in a manner of speaking.

The local city council capped more than a year of EDC planning and negotiation Tuesday by giving formal approval to a $493,000 rail line construction project at the McMahon-Wrinkle Airpark.

The agreement between EDC and the city will expand the rail line at the airpark and is part of an overall plan by the corporation to enhance rail service in the area.

The agreement includes production clauses in case the company would want to commence drilling operations.
