- Concern about truck traffic and the impact it would have on the cities of North Branch, Minn., and Taylors Falls, Minn., has led Superior Silica Sand to withdraw its proposal to build a trans-loading station for frac sand in North Branch’s ESSBY business park, according to the Post Review. North Branch City Administrator Bridgitte Konrad said the business sent the city a letter informing officials that it is no longer interested in the site. Superior Silica Sand had received complaints from residents in North Branch and Taylors Falls. Residents in both those cities were concerned the municipalities are not adequately equipped to handle 200-250 trucks per day filled with sand passing through them.
