Railroad holding meeting to discuss tunnel roof raising
CSX Transportation has scheduled an informational meeting to provide the public with information on a project to raise the roof of the tunnel under the SouthSide Works.
The meeting is slated for Wednesday, March 21, from 6-8 p.m. at the SpringHill Suites Meeting Room, 2950 South Water Street in the South Side Works.
The tunnel roof will be raised in three sections in order to accommodate double-stack intermodal container carriers. Two abandoned bridges at the ends of the tunnel will also be removed.
Small discussion groups will be continued throughout the session so those attending may come at any time during the meeting times.
