McDoel Switch Yard

From Bloomingpedia

"The group (The Indiana University/Bloomington Business Partnership (IUBBP) is sponsored by the Bloomington Economic Development Corporation.) also made the case for the city’s acquisition of rail lines, and relocation and development of a state-of the-art transload/switch facility within the city’s industrial corridor.

"The city has proposed that the former McDoel Switch Yard would then be turned into a new urban park with pedestrian/bike trails connecting to existing trails to the south. The project would permit Bloomington to eliminate freight traffic through the city’s urban core, turn a 100-year-old switch yard into a community asset and create a modern transload facility.[1]"
