Effective June 1, CSX will increase the authorized speed of freight trains by 15 mph at multiple locations on its line from Montgomery, Alabama, to Waygross, Georgia. 

The increase from 25 mph to a maximum 40 mph will help reduce wait times for motorists at highway-rail intersections and improve the efficiency of rail operations, CSX officials said in a press release. 

Track and signal improvements have been made to allow for the safe increase of train speeds in accordance with federal regulations, they said. 

Communities affected long the line include Troy, Ozark and Dothan in Alabama, and Thomasville, Quitman and Homerville in Georgia.
