E. Oregon ag community applauds $26 million for rail transload facility

The Oregon Legislature’s recently passed transportation bill includes $26 million for a rail transload facility that will be built near Ontario in Eastern Oregon. The facility is expected to drive down freight costs considerably for agricultural and other products shipped out of the region.

Eastern Oregon is on the path to landing a major rail transload facility, and that news is sending a jolt of excitement through the region’s agricultural industry.
