Since our last update, both parties have been involved in soliciting proposals to build a 200,000 SF facility with railroad siding. Discussions have also taken place with representatives of Palmyra Township regarding permitting and compliance issues.

The overall infrastructure improvement for Ideal Steel will include rebuilding a train trestle and repair of the rail line. Wayne County Industrial Development Authority (WIDA) owns the trestle that was washed out in April ’04, and is applying to PA Dept. of Community and Economic Development for an Infrastructure Development Program (IDP) Grant. We anticipate that the trestle will be rebuilt concurrently with the construction of the Ideal Steel building. The L-H Shippers will also repair any washouts along the Stourbridge Line between Honesdale and Lackawaxen. Ideal Steel anticipates rail traffic of 150-200 cars annually, making it absolutely essential that we restore the railroad.
