GREENCASTLE, Pa. — Years of planning a second major rail facility in
Franklin County will go public next week when Norfolk Southern unveils plans for
building near Exit 3 of Interstate 81 in Antrim Township, a company
spokesman said Friday.
Norfolk Southern will announce its Franklin County Regional Intermodal
Facility during a press conference Wednesday at the Mason-Dixon Auto Auction.
Details of the announcement will not be made public before that day, despite
media reports, Norfolk Southern spokesman Rudy Husband said.
The facility will be an anchor for Norfolk Southern’s Crescent Corridor
rail route, according to an invitation to the event. Husband said invitations
were sent to about 300 people.
Among those invited were Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, who has proposed $45
million for upgrades to the company’s railroad system in the Commonwealth,
and U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., who recently announced $3.4 million in
federal funding for Exit 3.
