Investment Projects
National Gateway

  • The National Gateway is an approximately $850 million, multi-state, public-private infrastructure project to improve the flow of freight between the Mid-Atlantic and the Midwest by clearing key freight corridors for double-stack rail service. The National Gateway has received considerable state and federal funding and CSX is investing approximately $575 million in the project.
  • The first phase of the National Gateway, which clears the way for double-stack intermodal service between CSX’s existing terminal in Chambersburg, Pa., and its state-of-the-art hub facility in Northwest Ohio, was completed on time and on budget in September 2013. The project is currently in its second phase, which will double-stack clear the CSX corridor between Chambersburg and mid-Atlantic ports.
  • In March 2015, CSX was recognized by Preservation Montgomery, Inc., for its commitment to maintaining the historic aesthetic of the Humpback Bridge in Washington Grove, Md., while raising it as part of the National Gateway project.
