North Carolina DOT, city team up with Class Is to build connector track


Later this month, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), CSX Transportation, Carolina Coastal Railway, Norfolk Southern Railway and the city of Greenville, N.C., plan to launch construction of a new connector track in Greenville.

The track will be installed between a CSXT line and Carolina Coastal Railway line to provide a direct north-to-east connection for rail traffic moving through downtown Greenville. The connector also will reduce motorists’ waiting periods at grade crossings and eliminate “difficult train movements” between Arlington Boulevard and Howell Street, NCDOT officials said in a prepared statement.

The city currently is acquiring necessary right of way for the connector track.
