The wait is over: Greenville train moves

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

If you've been blaming the train for making you late to work, you'll have to come up with a new excuse.

Today, the Department of Transportation officially moved the CSX switching yard in Greenville to Staton Mill Road north of the city.

That means those long waits at Arlington Boulevard shouldn't happen too often.

State and city officials were there to celebrate the move at a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday afternoon.

"We at NCDOT collaborated with CSX with the city of Greenville to develop a project that would move that traffic out of town, as far as switching traffic and also to make it work more efficiently inside the town with the connector that we built a couple years ago," said Paul Worley, NCDOT.

Greenville Mayor, Allen Thomas, says 90% of Greenville's switchyard traffic will now happen out in the Northern Pitt Area.
