    The Engineering company has been selected and the bids for the clearing of the line from Lake Village, AR to Lake Providence, LA are being advertised right now in the newpapers. NLA now has a full time crew and is operating most days from Lake Village to McGehee. Section work is still provided by D&R crews. Delays seem likely, but we are still trying to get the line open in the first half of 2013.

    Thank you for your interest, I will try to answer any specific questions you might have.
