CSXT recovers from Nashville floods ahead of schedule



Yesterday, CSX Transportation re-opened its Memphis-to-Nashville line, which was heavily damaged by major flooding earlier this month.

Operations resumed late yesterday over the entire length of the 200-mile line in western Tennessee, including two bridges across the Harpeth River that sustained heavy damage.

Although the track is open, additional work is planned each day from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Trains will operate over the line from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. Some train re-routes still will continue for several days until all work is completed, CSXT said.

Service resumed ahead of the original mid-June completion estimate because work progressed more quickly, CSXT officials said in a prepared statement.

The Class I also announced it plans to pre-pay Tennessee property taxes for tax year 2010, which are not due until early 2011, to assist recovery efforts. Nearly $2.7 million will be paid early to 23 counties, including $1 million to Davidson County, which includes Nashville.
