Upgrades Planned for NS Intermodal Terminal

July 2, 2015

A $34.3 million expansion of the Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal in Columbus is being planned with Norfolk Southern and terminal officials seeking a $17.15 million TIGER grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

If the grant application is successful, NS would contribute $17.15 million toward the expansion.

NS opened the $69 million intermodal terminal in 2008 and it is now known as Rickenbacker Global Logistics Park.

The planned upgrades to the facility located 12 miles south of downtown Columbus include lengthening existing lift tracks and adding an additional lift crane.

The work would increase lift capacity to 300,000 annually from 210,000, according to the application. Construction could begin this year and be completed in 2018.
