DOT Chooses Dewitt Train Yard As Ideal "Inland Port"

posted by Jim Donovan -

The state DOT plans to expand the DeWitt rail yard into an "inland port," after a study commissioned by the state concluded that it is the only viable location for it.

DOT says that the "Inland Port" designation involves moving containerized freight between a maritime port of entry and another location by rail for an ultimate distribution by truck.  The study found that the CSX-controlled DeWitt yard has the potential to cut the cost of shipping by $500 per container and remove large trucks from Route 81, as well as facilitate employment growth related to existing and potential import and export businesses.
