In 2008, the U.S. Surface Transportation Board granted Southwest Gulf Railroad Company (SGRR) the authority to build and operate The Medina Line, a 9-mile common carrier railroad near Dunlay, Texas.
The Medina Line will:
- Operate as a common carrier rail line serving customers located on or near the line.
- Strategically connect the area to North American markets by tapping into the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern and Santa Fe railroads, connecting the West Coast to the Midwest across America’s heartland.
- Serve as a catalyst for new jobs and long-term economic opportunity in Medina County and Texas. To learn more about opportunities, click here.
- Generate new tax revenues for vital government services, including road construction and maintenance, schools, and public safety.
- Provide local businesses with a low-cost and convenient connection to the regional, national and global marketplace.
A safe and efficient transportation link, the line’s initial anchor customer will be The Medina Quarry, an existing limestone quarry at the northern end of the line operated by SGRR parent Vulcan Materials Company.
