Kansas City, Kan. – An environmental watchdog organization has gone to federal district court to ask a Kansas judge to freeze a permit to build a giant rail yard and truck depot in Johnson County .

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers did an assessment of the project last summer. The Natural Resources Defense Council doesn't think the job was thorough enough, considering possible health impact of diesel fumes from thousands of trucks expected at the cargo transfer site.
