Cargill is set to invest in a a $20 million renovation of its Circleville, Ohio grain elevator according to reporting by The Scioto Post's Jeremy Newman. The project aims to modernize the facility with upgraded equipment and support structures essential for the weighing and grading of corn and soybeans.

Project manager Barrett outlined the renovation's focus on enhancing safety, customer service, efficiency, and the facility's overall aesthetics. Key improvements will include better traffic flow, expedited stormwater drainage, and reduced dust levels, achieved by paving truck paths. These upgrades are expected to significantly enhance the operational capacity of the plant, enabling it to process and fill up to 105 railcars within a 24-hour period—a considerable improvement over the current capability, which can extend up to two days.

The facility, which handles up to 900,000 bushels of grain annually, has been known to cause traffic disruptions during peak operational times. The planned renovations aim to minimize these disruptions, promising a smoother commute for residents and visitors.
