Rail yard, substation projects continue in New Auburn

Posted: Wednesday, February 12, 2014 10:45 am

Work progresses on the site of a future power distribution center for Northern States Power Company, a subsidiary of Xcel Energy, off CTH Q in New Auburn. Visible beyond are railroad ties, stacked in pyramids, waiting to be installed as part of a rail yard to serve Chippewa Sand Company. Construction on both projects, which began in the fall, continue in spite of cold weather with a completion date anticipated in the spring. According to village documents, a second track running parallel to the existing track will cross CTH Q and curve west to the rail yard, which will be used to store rail cars. A maintenance building is also planned for the site. The power station will increase electricity distribution capacity and improve the reliability of service in the area, according to village documents.
