The Knickerbocker Cement Company, the new corporation which has started work on another big cement plant east of this city, in the town of Greenport, proposes to utilize the big dock it purchased on the river front at this city, where at one time there was a large ice house which was destroyed by fire several years ago.
The company has the use of the tracks of the Boston and Albany railroad passing thru this city, and a spur is now being laid from the branch here to the plant a short distance this side of the bridge crossing the Claverack creek.
The plan mapped out is to build a big trestle connecting with the B. & A. tracks near the South bay and extend it over the tracks of the New York Central railroad to the dock on the river front. The trestle will be a concrete and iron structure, and it is likely that work on its construction will soon commence.
