Rail maintenance project delayed on weak crude oil demand

SIOUX CITY (AP) -

The weak demand for crude oil and ethanol has delayed construction of a proposed $30.9 million rail car maintenance facility in northwest Iowa.
   The Sioux City Journal reports that local officials believe the TrinityRail project will still be built in Sioux City once shipments rebound.
   The 150,000-square-foot facility was supposed to create 250 new jobs including 160 that would pay $16.63 an hour. That's why state officials approved tax credits for the project last year.
   Sioux City economic development director Marty Dougherty says the company is re-evaluating the size of the project. Trinity Rail hasn't finalized a project agreement with the city.
