BEL AIRE, Kan. (AP) -- The city of Bel Aire has received nearly $1 million in grants and a low-interest loan to install a rail siding at an industrial park.

Bel Aire says it received $566,000 in grants from the Kansas Department of Transportation and a $421,000, 2 percent interest KDOT loan for the siding project at the Sunflower Commerce Park.

Bel Aire, located just outside Wichita, will provide $316,000 toward the project, which is expected to cost $1.3 million.

Bel Aire officials say they have been working with Buzzi Unicem to buy a 12-acre lot at the industrial park, and the funding for the project should allow the land purchase to close. Buzzi Unicem plans to build a $6 million facility that will use about 800 rail cars annually on the siding.
