Senator Fowler and Pepsi MidAmerica Update on Expansion Plans at Marion Plant

Harrisburg – A new roadway is under construction in Marion, as part of a partnership between the city and Pepsi MidAmerica. Senator Dale Fowler joined representatives from Pepsi MidAmerica yesterday to provide an update on ongoing expansion plans at the company’s Marion facility and project developments within the area to ease traffic flow. Senator Fowler stated that “The new Halfway Road development will allow an alternative route to the Southwest part of the city which improves interstate access, alleviates heavy traffic flow and supports expanded distribution at Pepsi MidAmerica.” Senator Fowler spearheaded efforts in obtaining approximately $3.5 million needed to fund the project, including costs for construction, design engineering, inspection, testing and land acquisition.
