Work on NS' West Virginia intermodal terminal slated for spring


Construction on Norfolk Southern Railway’s new intermodal facility in Prichard, W.Va., might begin in spring 2012, according to the West Virginia Department of Transportation’s Division of Highways.

Division officials held an informational public meeting on the project on Tuesday. Clearing and grading work on 78 acres at the site could start in March or April 2012.

The facility is part of NS’ Heartland Corridor, a double-stack intermodal route between the Port of Virginia in Norfolk, Va., and Chicago. NS opened the corridor in September 2010.
The Division of Highways is accepting written public comments on the project until Nov. 18.
