Track to be Removed at Buckeye Yard

An online report said Norfolk Southern is soliciting bids from contractors to remove about 64 miles of track from Buckeye Yard in Columbus.

Bids are due on Nov. 11 and a pre-bidding meeting and inspection of the site will be conducted on Nov. 4.

The bidders will also have to cleanup the site after tracks are removed.

NS largely idled Buckeye, located on the west side of Columbus, in May 2009. However, the Camp Chase Industrial Railroad had been interchanging with NS in the yard and CSX had intermodal operations there. However, the Camp Chase-NS interchange has reportedly been moved in recent months to a point closer to NS’s Watkins Yard in Columbus.

The yard was built by Penn Central in 1969.
