Read the full story from Colorado Public Radio.

U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper recently toured the construction site for a new state-of-the-art steel mill in Pueblo.

When operating at full capacity, the facility, owned by the multi-national company EVRAZ, is expected to process more than a billion pounds of steel each year into tens of millions of feet of rail for replacing and building train tracks around North America.

Construction of the new long rail mill is about 15 percent done according to EVRAZ management. It’ll use power generated by 750,000 nearby solar panels
