A planned CSX intermodal facility is key to keeping Maryland's freight transportation infrastructure relevant, writes state Transportation Secretary Beverley Swaim-Staley. Rail freight helps maintain 1,600 local jobs worth more than $110 million in wages in the state. The planned facility would be able to handle double-stacked containers and would become a hub along the railroad's National Gateway. Swaim-Staley estimates the corridor will bring $2 billion in public benefits to Maryland.
