ROCKINGHAM — This week the Aberdeen Carolina & Western Railway Company announced that they were the successful beneficiaries of a $13 million Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements grant.

Rep. Scott Brewer, D-Richmond, is proud to have worked closely with the ACWR company to help them apply for this grant, by writing multiple letters of recommendation to the Federal Railroad Administration. In response to the grant announcement, Rep. Brewer issued the following statement:

“Hundreds of families in Montgomery, Stanly and Richmond Counties depend on our agricultural, aggregate and wood products industries. The programs the ACWR has planned for expanding their capacity and improving fluidity through our area will provide benefits for many years to come.

“I was happy to work with the ACWR company and recommend them for the CRISI grant, and I’m excited to see the improvements they make.”
