Get Rail and Highway Updates

Local, state and federal elected and agency officials will get an update Wednesday on proposed rail and highway improvements in the Longview industrial corridor that are considered key to attracting the job-creating businesses to the Columbia River waterfront.

The special meeting on the State Route 432/Tennant Way/Industrial Way project will be hosted by Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments (CWCOG) at 6:00 p.m. at the Kelso train station, 501 S. First Street.

Options to improve safety, mobility and freight capacity have been evaluated and will be discussed Wednesday, CWCOG spokeswoman Melissa Taylor said.

The agency held three public meetings last fall to solicit ideas and comments.  Now, a second round of meetings will look at the current project status, schedule and opportunities for public participation.
