Heartland Corridor

Most direct high-capacity intermodal route between mid-Atlantic and Midwest

Browse Heartland Corridor

The Heartland Corridor is a $290 million public-private partnership that offers efficient routing between the Port of Virginia and the Midwest. In a major engineering feat, clearances were raised in 29 tunnels to make way for double-stacked intermodal trains.

Together with new sidings, added terminal track capacity, and proposed access to new markets at Roanoke, Va., and Pritchard, W.Va., the Heartland Corridor increases freight capacity, removes trucks from congested highways, saves transit time for customers, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
