Nucor’s investment in the rebar mill in Missouri that is slated for operation in November 2019 has expanded opportunities for the area. The US Department of Transportation awarded Sedalia county a $10 million grant to extend its existing railroad tracks to the New Sedalia rail industrial park. Senator Blunt recently stated that the facility is the on track to become the largest, exclusive rail-served industrial park in the Midwest.

Sedalia-Pettis County Economic Development Executive Director Jessica Craigs recently noted to media sources that Nucor’s decision to build its mill in Sedalia has motivated additional investments. She noted that the steel plants inspired regional development in the community within the industrial park but also at retail and commercial locations.
