The North Carolina Railroad Company (NCRR) Board of Directors has approved moving forward with more than USD 13M in economic development investments across the state. The investments will expand rail access, improve safety and sustain rail projects spanning from Mecklenburg County northeast to Durham County, and from Durham County southeast to Wake and Craven Counties.
The NCRR makes strategic investments to build improvements in rail and fuel economic progress along and beyond the NCRR corridor.
“Our mission is to enable freight to grow business, expand rail to move people and invest in North Carolina,” said NCRR President, Scott Saylor. “We’re committed to working with local, state and private partners in planning for freight and pass
enger rail mobility now and in the future. 2015 will bring even more investment
forward to attract much -needed capital intensive employers to our state.”
