CCX Intermodal Terminal

CSX would like to thank the many local officials, key leaders and residents of Edgecombe and Nash Counties that joined the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and us at the CCX open house in Rocky Mount on June 13th. We are excited about the progress we are making with NCDOT on this transformational infrastructure project that will better connect eastern North Carolina businesses and consumers to markets throughout the country and around the world. To that end, CSX is pleased to announce that it has begun soliciting bids from general contractors interested in providing construction services to develop the new facility.

The Carolina Connector: A gateway connecting eastern North Carolina to CSX’s expansive railway system

In July 2016, the state of North Carolina, the Carolinas Gateway Partnership and CSX proudly announced Rocky Mount, North Carolina, as the home for a new intermodal rail terminal known as the Carolina Connector, or CCX. This $270M+ critical infrastructure project will serve as a major transportation hub in the Southeast, and a catalyst for substantial economic growth throughout the state of North Carolina.

    Driving the Economy Forward
    The CCX intermodal rail terminal will bring substantial economic benefits to Rocky Mount, the Twin Counties of Nash and Edgecombe and the state of North Carolina. CCX will create jobs, reduce transportation costs and stimulate economic activity. With this new transportation hub, existing businesses and state ports will have greater access to global markets at lower logistics costs. Over time, CCX is expected to bring $125 million to the North Carolina economy.

    As proven with other intermodal terminals on CSX’s network, these developments attract other industrial and supporting businesses to the local and surrounding communities, creating a multiplier effect for jobs and economic growth. The Carolina Connector is estimated to create 250-300 short-term construction jobs, 300 long-term positions for terminal operations, and over time, 1,500+ long-term jobs across the state. 
  • Improving Our Roads
    Converting freight shipments to rail will enable the new terminal to eliminate more than 16 million truck miles annually from heavily-traveled North Carolina highways, the equivalent of eliminating 270,000 truck trips from the roads each year. This will consequently reduce congestion, improve road safety and preserve roadway conditions. In total, CCX is expected to save the state $16 million in pavement maintenance savings.
  • Preserving the Environment
    Rail transportation is the most environmentally friendly way to move goods over land and is four times more fuel efficient than trucks. In fact, one intermodal train can carry the load of 280 trucks. Converting freight from highway to rail reduces emissions and improves air quality. Intermodal operations at CCX are estimated to reduce CO2 emissions in the state by 655,000 tons – the equivalent of taking 138,000 cars off the road.
Our Commitment to the Community 

CSX is committed to partnering with Rocky Mount, state and federal officials, and local residents to ensure that this development is positive for the community and the surrounding areas. Throughout this process, CSX will work closely with the local community to communicate openly, provide project updates, solicit feedback and address concerns.

CSX will work tirelessly to ensure that this project is completed the right way – in a manner that respects our neighbors and the environment. Safety will be our top priority throughout the construction process as it is in all aspects of our operations. We welcome and value your feedback, and will continue an open dialogue with the community every step of the way. 

CSX Community Programs: 

The Conservation Fund and CSX are proud to partner to support the 2016 On Track with Healthy Foods Grant Program to increase access to local, fresh foods in North Carolina’s Nash and Edgecombe Counties. The program provides small grants ranging from $1,000 to $40,000 to support community- or faith-based projects that increase access to healthy foods in the Twin Counties, near the future CCX terminal. Applications are currently being reviewed and will be announced at a later date.

Development Process

CSX is at the beginning of an extensive and thorough process, and timing is subject to change based on a number of factors. The following timeline outlines the proposed phases of the project:  

Project Phases: CCX Intermodal Terminal
2016 - 2017 Preliminary engineering and design
Mid 2018 Complete permitting process and begin construction
Late 2019 Complete construction; begin terminal operations
About Intermodal Terminals

“Intermodal” refers to the movement of freight in containers using multiple modes of transportation. At intermodal terminals like CCX, containerized goods arrive on trains or trucks, are sorted and transferred by electric cranes to other trains or trucks and then shipped to their final destinations. Intermodal combines the best of both worlds – the fuel efficiency of trains with the door-to-door flexibility of trucks – to deliver products to consumers in an efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly manner. 

CSX has an award-winning record for its environmentally responsible operations and facilities, including intermodal terminals with low-impact designs. In 2015, the Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal received the E3 Gold Award from the Ohio EPA for environmental excellence. CCX will continue this tradition of environmental excellence with state-of-the-art, sustainable technology and equipment to reduce emissions, noise and light at the facility. Among the numerous cutting-edge, energy-efficient technologies,
CCX will be equipped with:

  • zero-emission, electric wide-span cranes that are almost silent;
  • directional lighting to reduce potential impacts on the surrounding community;
  • idle reducing technology to reduce noise, fuel consumption and carbon emissions;
  • automated gate system that enhances truck throughput and minimizes wait times; and
  • efficient water quality management techniques.
