Trees and Tracks Removed from CSX Yard in Locust Point

| September 20, 2021 | 0 Comments

In recent months, CSX has removed some trees and a lot of tracks from its train yard in Locust Point. The work is taking place east of Andre St. and on both sides of E. Fort Ave.

A representative from CSX’s media relations team told the following:

CSX invests heavily in our rail network to keep freight moving safely and reliably to customers. As part of our routine infrastructure maintenance program, CSX crews removed some out of service track at our Locust Point yard, along with trees that were affecting the integrity of the rail bed.

CSX did not say if there are plans for the extra yard space created.

Maryland Department of Transportation’s Port Administration (MPA) recently put the adjacent 100-acre North Locust Point Marine Terminal up for a Request for Information.
