State approves $2.6M for rail work in Erie
 
The Pennsylvania Transportation Commission on Thursday approved $26.1 million in airport and rail freight grants, including $2.6 million for rail work associated with the Erie Inland Port project.
 
The commission evaluates and assesses the resources needed to maintain and expand the state's transportation system.
 
The Greater Erie Industrial Development Corp. received $2.6 million to acquire an existing sidetrack from Erie's port and construct three new sidetracks -- totaling about 2,250 track feet -- to provide railcar storage, active product unloading and transfer, and a locomotive runaround, state officials said.
 
This will support a new biomass terminal producing wooden pellets for export.
 
The Economic Development Corp. of Erie County plans to develop a large-scale regional logistics hub, known as the Erie Inland Port project, at multiple sites in Erie and Ashtabula counties.
