ELMENDORF - Mission Rail Park has broken ground on a 1,000-acre rail yard near Elmendorf just south of Loop 1604. Plans call for the site to be a center for oil field service companies working in the Eagle Ford, shipping anything from sand for hydraulic fracturing to crude oil.

Frac Resources and Frontier Logistics partnered on the project, with an estimated $12 million to $15 million investment in the first phase of the rail park. Initial construction will allow for the property to handle multiple 100-car unit trains.

Most of the project sits in Wilson County. About 100 acres is in Bexar County. Mission Rail Park should open by mid-summer.
