The Iowa Transportation Commission approved more than $3.3 million in funding for seven rail improvement projects as part of the Railroad Revolving Loan and Grant Program (RRLGP). The rail projects are expected to support the creation of 84 new jobs, leverage nearly $25 million in new capital investment and provide $1 million to reconstruct a rail bridge in Waterloo destroyed by floodwaters in 2008. Schau Recycling was one of seven awarded funding to build a rail spur.
