Grant Approved To Replace Brunswick Rail Bridge

The Grand River railroad bridge west of Brunswick will be replaced with a $17,250,000 grant from the federal government.  Congressman Sam Graves announced the approval of the grant for the replacement of the bridge that was damaged when it was struck by debris in the 2019 flood.

Graves says the bridge is important to the area due to a shipping facility in the area.  He says “It’s going to ensure continued railroad access to the port west of Brunswick, the largest multimodal facility on the Missouri River. That’s even more important with the recent Marine Highway Project designation to initiate container-on-barge shipping on the Missouri River to Brunswick.”
