CSX to create double-stack corridor in Philadelphia
Yesterday, Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, and CSX Corp. Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Ward marked the construction of a double-stack corridor designed to expand Philadelphia's freight transportation options and position the region for growth.
The project calls for clearing 16 overhead bridges to foster a faster and more-efficient intermodal connection with the Midwest. The corridor will be funded by $10 million from two federal sources, $10 million from the commonwealth and more than $12 million from CSX.
