Terre Haute officials pursing railroad port

January 9, 2007
City and economic development officials in Terre Haute want to reroute railroad traffic out of the western Indiana city to an 8,000-acre site east of town near Interstate 70.

Mayor Kevin Burke, who announced the proposed Hoosier Inland Port on Monday, said the site near Terre Haute International Airport-Hulman Field would be a hub for exchanging air and railroad cargo, according to The Tribune-Star. It would require a new interstate interchange.

The Economic Development Corp. is talking with Colorado owners of the site, and local legislators will ask that a summer legislative committee study the idea, Burke said.
