Ohio Governor Strickland, Congressman Latta, and CSX Chairman Ward Break Ground for Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal

“NORTH BALTIMORE, Ohio, Aug. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, Congressman Bob Latta and CSX Chairman, President and CEO Michael Ward today broke ground for a new intermodal terminal in North Baltimore, Ohio, which will support the efficient and environmentally beneficial movement of containers between rail and truck.

“The new Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal will employ more than 200 people when fully operational in 2011 with 400 more jobs to be created during the construction phase. Over the next 10 years, more than 2,600 direct and indirect jobs will be created as a result of the facility. The terminal will serve as the distribution hub for anything that can be bought at a retailer — from household electronic equipment to clothing. The facility is the cornerstone of the National Gateway, a $840 million, multi-state infrastructure initiative aimed at creating an efficient and environmentally friendly freight link between the Mid-Atlantic ports and the Midwest.”
