CP Rail will proceed with yard expansion

City powerless to regulate project
The city of St. Paul, it would seem, doesn't have much of a say over what happens to its sensitive wildlife area at Pig's Eye Lake, at least not when the railroads are involved.
Canadian Pacific Railway will look to bypass the city's demands and push forward with plans to infill six acres of wetlands along the lake, in order to expand its switching yard, known as Dunn Yard, which sits along the Mississippi River just to the west of Highway 61 near the intersection of Lower Afton Road.
