CSX to build intermodal terminal in North Carolina, serve inland port in Georgia

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory last week announced CSX plans build the Carolina Connector (CCX) intermodal terminal in Rocky Mount. The Class I previously had planned to construct a terminal in another part of the state.
 
Initially, the CCX is expected to process more than 260,000 containers per year. CSX plans to provide $160 million for the more than $200 million terminal. The North Carolina Department of Transportation will contribute $100 million for track improvements and terminal infrastructure through the state’s new transportation funding formula.
 
The CCX is expected to open in 2020, with related track improvements projected to take two years to complete after all necessary environmental permits are obtained. Carolinas Gateway Partnership, a local economic development organization, controls nearly all of the land needed for the facility, which is located along CSX’s mainline in a primarily industrial area.

The CCX will provide cheaper, faster and more environmentally friendly connections for North Carolina’s businesses and ports to domestic and international markets, said CSX Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Ward in a press release.
