The proposed intermodal rail facility at Florida's Jacksonville Port moved closer to construction with a $10 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant from the Department of Transportation. CSX Transportation co-sponsored the TIGER application for the project, requesting $25 million for construction expenses. "This new transfer facility will allow JaxPort to better compete with other ports around the world since the funding will allow it to transfer cargo off the port to its final location via rail in a quicker and more efficient manner," said Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Fla.
