SCOTT CITY, MO (KFVS) - Former Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder met with the SEMO Port Authority at he monthly board of commissioners meeting in March.

Kinder discussed plans on Harbor Track No. 2 grading and construction.

Harbor Lead Track No. 2 will provide a second track into the Port's harbor industrial area, according to the Delta Regional Authority.  It is designed to eliminate a steep grade and, in the future, will allow better handling of 100-car unit trains into the Port.
