Railport proposal debated
Residents of Beach, North Dakota recently had the opportunity to express concerns about a new railport that has been proposed outside of town. The port, which would cost approximately $65 million, would be designed to bring in supplies for the oil fields, and would also be capable of shipping oil a few years from now. The railport would potentially be built around a mile and a half outside of town and would sit on 275 acres. When complete, it would create 45-60 permanent jobs. Read more from Prairie Business.
