RAIL LINE ACCESS
Osceola is served by the BNSF Railway, which owns the line of railroad tracks in Osceola. BNSF is a national railroad company that is one of seven North American Class I railroads and owns the second largest freight network. The Site touches a BNSF Spur and is approximately 1 mile from the BNSF Mainline. The Site is the only practicable location in Central Iowa where an industrial facility can locate and have access to the mainline. The owners of the Site have received assurances from BNSF that the spur may be utilized under appropriate circumstances. Previously, a $500,000 RISE (Revitalize Iowa’s Sound Economy) grant was approved to upgrade and repair the Spur to allow for industrial usage. Substantial value would be derived by a user connecting easily to the main intercontinental BNSF line due to lower shipping rates and transit times.
The Site is bordered on the West by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Spur which connects the BNSF Mainline. LeAnn Drive borders the Site to the North and provides immediate access to US Highway 69. No rights-of-way, easements, or other impediments block access to, or development of, the Site.
Clarke Electric Cooperative power is available through both overhead and underground 3 Phase lines. These lines deliver 7,200 volts to ground, and 12,470 from Phase to Phase. Rate incentives are available.
