COLUMBUS, Ind. - An $80 million grant for improvements in Columbus, Indiana projects will allow for a $50 million renovation of the Cummins, Inc.'s corporate office building.
The project will accommodate 1,200 employees once it is completed in 2019 - which will be Cummins' 100th anniversary, according to a story from WHAS11 Columbus.
The first project will be a $30 million railroad overpass for State Road 46, which is a primary entrance and exit for people traveling in and out of Columbus, according to the story.
Cummins, which builds engines, said the overpass comes after CSX revealed plans to increase train travel through the area. The increased traffic will produce significant delays for drivers, making the overpass necessary.
