Truckers 'hurry up and wait' to deliver grain

Driving down Wabash Avenue in January, it’s not uncommon to see a line of semi-trucks nearly a mile long that reaches from their destination to the South Street bridge. The trucks wait in line for hours to unload their grain and beans at the Cargill facility in Lafayette, the preferred location for drivers who’d otherwise have to travel to Linden or Frankfort. “If you cut somebody off, that’s when the trouble starts,” Romney farmer Al Davis said, chuckling and waiting for his turn Wednesday afternoon.
