GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — Bartlett Grain says it plans to build a grain elevator near Great Bend that will employ more than 10 people year round.

The company, based in Kansas City, Missouri, says construction will start this month off U.S. 56 east of Great Bend. The site is on the Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad.

The Wichita Eagle reports the elevator is designed to hold nearly 3 million bushels and load 110 car shuttle trains.

It is scheduled to be opened for the 2015 wheat harvest.

This will be the company’s 10th elevator in Kansas.
