(Kingsbury, IN) - Longstanding efforts to further develop Kingsbury Industrial Park are ongoing.
Officials report progress in getting two major rail lines connected to serve the park. Matt Reardon with the LaPorte County Office of Economic and Community Development said there’s renewed interest from a couple of landowners to finish some of the improvements on the existing rail inside the park and make the connections to the major rail lines nearby. Officials also report legal proceedings have started to obtain easements needed to make those rail connections. It’s believed two major rail lines serving the park would bring more new companies and create hundreds, if not, more new jobs.
