Comments Close Aug. 8 for Bailey Branch

Bailey BranchCORVALLIS, Ore. — Benton County still needs your help deciding what to do with the Bailey Branch line.

The county purchased the old rail corridor in October for almost a half-million dollars. Eventually the county wants to restore rail service to the area, but in the meantime is trying to figure out what to do with it.

The right-of-way runs from south of Corvallis to Monroe, then heads west towards Hull-Oakes Lumber.

Some options include developing public trails, swapping the land with surrounding land owners to make it closer to a road, or selling or leasing the land.

The public has until August 8 to comment.
