CSX announced that a $59 million intermodal freight terminal expansion is under way in Columbus, Ohio.

The Columbus terminal expansion will ready the region with the capacity needed for anticipated growth in business, according to the company.

The terminal expansion includes a redesign of the site footprint, installation and realignment of tracks, reconfiguration of inbound and outbound truck gates, additional onsite parking, and three, high tech, rail-mounted, electric wide-span cranes.

This terminal expansion is part of the National Gateway initiative, linking deep-water east coast ports with Midwestern markets. The overall project covers six states and the District of Columbia and includes rail capacity enhancements and intermodal terminal capacity improvements. Earlier this year, CSX opened the cornerstone of the National Gateway, a new $175 million intermodal terminal in Northwest Ohio.
