Posted: Updated:

The City of Clarksburg and the state Department of Transportation have signed an agreement to help the city repair rails near the industrial park.

The $266,000 grant includes replacement of rail ties and switching mechanisms and improving the stability of the railroad bed.

The upgrades will allow businesses to ship goods more efficiently.

The project will start when the city works out the logistics between one of the railroads and a contractor.
