HETTINGER, N.D. (AP) — A Washington state-based grain company plans to build an $18 million elevator in southwest North Dakota's Adams County.
County officials last week gave United Grain Corp. approval for the facility on 320 acres of land. It will be able to handle 110-car trains. It is expected to be done by June 2013.
The Dickinson Press reports that the company has set aside about $750,000 to add turning lanes on U.S. Highway 12 to prevent accidents.
United Grain vice president Anthony Flagg says the facility is aimed at helping the company secure its wheat source.
