SASPAMCO -- Those who drive along C.R. 128, which turns into Old Corpus Christi Road as it crosses the line from Wilson County into Bexar County, might notice that crews have been installing railroad tracks along the east side of the roadway. The tracks will lead into the Mission Rail Park, where Terry Warth, vice president of brokerage services for San Antonio-based commercial real estate firm CBRE Inc., is hopeful that rail access will be in place by August.

Warth noted that a railroad crossing already has been established that would allow freight trains to cross the roadway to access the approximately 1,000-acre property that straddles the county line. The park extends from the intersection of Gillett Road and Old Corpus Christi Road all the way to the San Antonio River.

Talks are under way with companies that have expressed interest in moving to the park. Warth said that multiple industrial users have their eyes on the Mission Rail Park, not just companies that provide services related to the ongoing exploration of the Eagle Ford shale play.

Over the next 30 days, Warth said crews will continue to move southward as they finish work on the main line of the railway. Then they will start laying track in the actual park.

For more information on the Mission Rail Park, call Warth at 210-225-1000.

I just hope the State keeps up with roads and the County Commissioners keep the trucks away from North Elementary. The literature indicates 15,000 railcar loads per year. Of course, the competition at East Kelly Railport can ... More ›

Moving goods and people by rail is far more environmentally friendly than by air or by automobile/truck. Think of how many trucks these trains will take off our roadways. The only trucks needed for break and bulk facilities are ... More ›

I am concerned about this Park and it's environmental and traffic impact. 181 North is already very congested in the morning. How can I believe that this devoloper cares about the environmental impact when their website ( http://www.missionrailpark.com/index.php/the-property) ... More ›
