Anyone know which side of Willard this will be built on? CSX will provide rail access.

Star of the West Milling Company of Frankenmuth Michigan will be building a mill that will produce one million pounds of flour a day. Hoping to be in production summer 2016.

Does anybody know if the connection to CSX was made? The site was chosen for direct access to allow inbound wheat shipments and outbound shipments of flour. The site is less than a mile east of Willard yard. The mill was completed in July 2016 but this photo from google in November of 2017 shows no connection.

Looks like they will need to build a rail there to connect to the CSX rail or maybe they are going to haul by truck. Looks like to put a rail in there will be rather expensive and not a short rail at that to make the connection

That google image is from 2015...
But looking at their website the mill does not have rail.
