Ohio's Trumbull and Mahoning counties may receive funding to upgrade railroads, including bridge replacement and other projects in the region. CSX Transportation plans to create a rail corridor linking mid-Atlantic ports to the Midwest, and it needs to update tracks to provide vertical clearance for two shipping containers stacked on top of one another. The public-private partnership includes $395 million from CSX, and the remaining $447 million from state and federal grants.
