GARY – The expansion of the Kirk Yard in Gary has been scaled back by Canadian National Railway Co. Originally planned as a $165 million project that would provide 251 jobs, the project now will be $141 million and create 119 new jobs.

Canadian National had planned to move is locomotive repair facility from Illinois to Gary, but instead that operation will remain in Illinois because of a change in the economic climate.

Even with the reduction in scope, Canadian National said that when it’s finished with the Kirk Yard expansion it will be the center of its operations in the United States.
