Rail line to expand near Victoria port with federal, local funds | Premium

Future and existing businesses at the Port of Victoria will be served by 1.9 new miles of rail line because of new funding announced Thursday.

The U.S. Department of Commerce will contribute $3 million in grant money for the construction of the rail line with another $3 million in matched funds from the port itself. The Department of Commerce’s grant is the largest federal grant the port has ever received, according to press releases from both organizations.
