CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina State Ports Authority has untangled a snag in its plans to build a $35 million inland port in Greer.

The authority needed property leased by a company that operates a refrigerated warehouse at the site. But the company initially refused to give up the site.

But now the authority and Nordic Cold Storage have reached a settlement. The authority will buy the rest of Nordic's 11-year lease for about $2.

That clears the way to finish the port work. The port will hold shipping containers for transfer to trains for shipment to the coast. It's expected to open in September.

Ports officials think the inland port could eliminate 50,000 truck trips a year on busy Interstate 26 between Charleston and the Greenville-Spartanburg area.
