Stimulus funds to help VW plant in Tennessee

CHATTANOOGA — A $6 million railroad project in Chattanooga for the new Volkswagen plant and suppliers at the Enterprise South Industrial Park will be funded partly with federal stimulus funds.
The project will help Volkswagen deliver cars when production starts in early 2011.

Hamilton County Railroad Authority director Tim Andrews told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that the work will include expanding a rail overpass near the site where Volkswagen is building the $1 billion plant.

Chattanooga and Hamilton County seek the federal grant money.
