CSX Pittsburgh Terminal to Open in August

An intermodal terminal under construction near Pittsburgh will open in late August, CSX officials say.

The 70-acre site is located in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, along the former Pittsburgh & Lake Erie mainline.

The facility is costing $60 million to develop and is expected to employ 30-40 permanent employees.

The terminal will have two processing tracks, one support track, and one lead track. A CSX spokesperson told Trains magazine that the scope of operations of the terminal will be determined in August.

When announcing the terminal earlier, CSX had said that it will serve the Pittsburgh region and East Coast ports.

The Pittsburgh intermodal terminal is also tied in with the CSX National Gateway initiative to link the Midwest and ports in the Mid-Atlantic.

Once the National Gateway is fully operational it also will handle stacked container trains between the Midwest and ports in North Carolina.
