RICHMOND, Texas (AP) - Kansas City Southern plans to build a
distribution center and railroad facility in Fort Bend County that
could create up to 2,000 jobs in the region.
An official with the railroad says the development plan includes
a 636-acre industrial park and an intermodal facility with up to
7.5 million square feet of industrial warehouse space for storing
rail and truck containers.
Construction is set to begin immediately, and the first phase
could be complete as early as May.
Kansas City Southern railroad is also spending about $120
million to rebuild a rail line between Rosenberg and Victoria that
has been out of operation for decades.
