Description:

The Wilmington Rail Realignment Project (Project) is located primarily within the City of Wilmington and New Hanover County, but also extends into Brunswick County. The existing CSXT rail line, commonly referred to as the “Beltline,” is the only active track through the City. The Project proposes to reroute all existing freight traffic (both local and through traffic) from the Beltline to a new rail connection to be constructed between Davis Yard/Navassa and the Port of Wilmington. The Project will improve safety, regional transportation mobility, and freight rail operations, while also improving the resiliency, reliability, and operational fluidity of the sole freight rail route connecting southeastern North Carolina with the Port of Wilmington. Currently the Project is unfunded.
