CSX schedules public meeting on Carolina Connector project


CSX will host an open house tomorrow in Rocky Mount, N.C., to share the latest information on the proposed Carolina Connector intermodal terminal.

CSX representatives will discuss the proposed terminal design, development process, types of jobs at CSX and CSX's community partnerships, Class I officials said in a press release.

"The open house is an opportunity for CSX to hear from community members as much as it is for the community to hear about CSX," said CSX spokeswoman Kristin Seay in an email. "We want to help people understand the phases of the development process and what kinds of activities they can expect to see as well as what is taking place behind the scenes."

CSX, the Carolinas Gateway Partnership and North Carolina state officials announced the Carolina Connector project in July. The $270 million infrastructure project will serve as a "major transportation hub" in the Southeast, and serve as a catalyst for economic development in North Carolina, CSX officials said in a post on the project website.

CSX officials anticipate construction will begin in 2018 and operations will start in 2020.
