KIMBALL, S.D. — Works is under way on a new $32 million grain elevator about six miles east of Kimball, S.D.

The topsoil at the Liberty Grain LLC group site is being stripped for building sites and roads.

Chuck Jepson says the project should be completed around October 2012.

Jepson's facility is expected to hire 70 to 100 construction workers for more than a year to build the grain elevator. Once complete, the elevator will have 12 to 15 employees.

The new elevator could handle 400 to 600 trucks each day dumping 100,000 bushels an hour. Jepson estimates the maximum number of bushels of grain entering the facility at 15 million per year.
