MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is giving out a $2.6-million freight rail loan to Country Visions Co-op so that its dry fertilizer facility can ship products by rail. The money is being appropriated through the state’s freight railroad infrastructure improvement loan program.

The Wisconsin & Southern Railroad will serve the facility along the Plymouth to Sheboygan Falls, Wis., route. The right-of-way was recently reconstructed using money from the state’s freight rail preservation program.

The loan program is designed to improve existing rail infrastructure and provide funding for new rail-served facilities.
