Latest on the ThyssenKrupp Steel Plant

New industry is also making an impact on the economy... As you heard first on Wsfa 12 News... Germany-based Thyssen Krupp will build a multi-billion dollar steel mill in Mobile County. Governor Bob Riley helped make the announcement on Friday. And we're learning more now about 'why' Alabama was chosen. It turns out, Louisiana might have made for a better choice because of the depth of the Mississippi River. But to accommodate for the more shallow Mobile and Tombigbee Rivers... Alabama agreed to build a terminal near the Gulf of Mexico... To unload sea-going vessels... And place material on barges, for shipment to the plant site.
