The Canadian Wheat Board began construction of a new grain elevator near St. Adophe, Manitoba in 2015. Pouring of the concrete began on May 4 and by July 2015 the build was well under way. It is scheduled to begin receiving grain in March 2016.

The St. Adolphe grain elevator will have a capacity of 34,000 tonnes and will feature a 134-car loop track connected to the CN Letellier subdivision. The elevator will be able to load over 1,600 tonnes/hour into the rail cars.
