Norfolk Southern today opened its third Crescent Corridor intermodal facility, a new $97 million terminal in south central Pennsylvania that advances the company’s multi-state infrastructure initiative connecting the Southeast and Northeast.

The Franklin County Regional Intermodal Facility is located on 200 acres south of Greencastle, Pa.

The facility, a public-private partnership involving $52 million in NS funds and supported by a $45 million investment by Pennsylvania, is part of the railroad’s Crescent Corridor series of projects, a 2,500-mile network of rail and terminals.

It is the third Crescent Corridor intermodal terminal NS has opened since mid-2012. The other facilities are located in Birmingham, Ala., and Memphis, Tenn. Construction of a fourth Crescent Corridor-related terminal, located in Charlotte, N.C., is underway.

Pennsylvania has also provided or pledged a total of $30 million for expanded operations at NS’ Harrisburg and Rutherford intermodal terminals. Additionally, the commonwealth successfully applied for a $15 million U.S. Department of Transportation TIGER grant to support the Rutherford expansion project.
