CN Two Harbors

dmir227's picture

An article in today's DNT mentioned that the Minnesota DNR will be holding public hearings in Two Harbors about a land swap that would involve the old roundhouse site with land near the old coaling dock. CN would re-acquire the roundhouse site and demolish it to make way for a limestone storage area. There is concern about airborne particles from the limestone handling. The article (from the DNT's sister publication Lake County Chronicle) went on to say CN plans to reduce operations at their dock in Duluth due to the unstable nature of the footings and high cost to repair the structure. What was interesting is a line about CN negotiating with Cliffs to acquire the ore dock in Taconite Harbor (and I presume the rail line) to handle ore what normally would go through Duluth.
