Peterson Announces State Investment in Infrastructure to Support Jobs and Mobility
November 23, 2021

COLUMBUS—State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) this week announced controlling board approval of $737,101 for infrastructure improvements located on the Greenfield Rail Line in the Village of Greenfield.

The Village of Greenfield owns and operates a private rail line serving three major industrial operations, including Huhtamaki, Adient and Candle-Lite, which combined, employ over 1,200 southeast Ohioans.  

In partnership with the Ohio Rail Development Commission, the project improvements will increase capacity and efficiency on the line, which is currently in jeopardy as tie conditions continue to deteriorate.

"This infrastructure investment will help keep products moving, continuing the trajectory of bringing viability to our community and helping improve the quality of life for the hard-working people in southeast Ohio," said Peterson.
