The state of North Carolina, Carolinas Gateway Partnership and CSX recently announced that a new intermodal rail terminal will be located in Rocky Mount, NC.

It will be known as the Carolina Connector (CCX) and will provide critical infrastructure as a primary transportation hub for the entire Southeast. It will also bring significant economic growth to the area as companies relocate to take advantage of this new connection to CSX’s railway system.

Cost of the Carolina Connector is expected to exceed $270 million.
