The industrial site offers a unique opportunity for prospects, accommodating rail, barge, and road accessibility in a single site. Norfollk Southern Railway services the 22,000 feet of rail lines within Trimodal Terminal. At the present time, the 3,000 feet of riverfront can house over 40 barges in addition to the proposed off loading facility. Additionally, utility services are readily available with excess water, gas and electricity on site. The enormity of the land area provides the ability to accommodate large-scale structures. There is a water well onsite that can produce over 1,000,000 GPD.

Patrick Ford of the Business Development Corporation of the Northern Panhandle commented, “The Trimodal facility is yet another privately funded owned and operated multimodal and multitenant industrial park on the Ohio River south of Pittsburgh. Jim Joseph and Scotty Ewusiak of Trimodal Terminal have been great partners of the BDC and their vision for this site in our region bodes very well for future economic development opportunities, private investment, and job creation in West Virginia’s northern panhandle. Brooke and Hancock Counties are clearly on the radar of the oil and gas industry.”

Approximately forty-eight acres of the eighty acre development site still remain available for lease.
