ARDMORE, OK - City leaders are discussing a plan to expand railroad access to the Airpark.

Members of the Ardmore Development Authority are considering a proposal to add a second rail spur at the airport.

It would go around the north side of the runway to the east side. Right now, this is all still in the planning stages, but the hope is that the extra rail access would help lure more companies out to the Airpark.

"We have three rail users and are running out of sites where we can locate industry, so our hope is to eventually build rail into the other portion of the Airpark," said Wes Stucky of the Ardmore Development Authority.

Any new companies would then have to add some extra rail to extend directly to their businesses.
