FAIRMONT — The owners of a $22 million grain elevator where one silo collapsed last month hope to reopen the facility in time for this fall’s harvest in southern Nebraska.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports it might take several more weeks for investigators and structural engineers to determine why a silo collapsed at the elevator that opened less than a year ago near Fairmont.
The grain elevator owned by CPI of Hastings and the Lansing Trade Group of Overland Park, Kan., has seven other silos that appear to be intact.
Bob Fifield of CPI said all the silos are being emptied as a precaution before demolition of the damaged silo. — AP
