Temco Grain Terminal Expansion on Track For Fall Completion
Aims to modernize a 1960s-era facility and double its capacity
A $50 million expansion of a Port of Kalama grain terminal is running behind schedule, but owners say the project should be completed in time to load crops from the fall harvest.
