As noted in our June 13, 2019 Customer Advisory, roadway repairs began at the Chicago 47th Intermodal Facility on June 17, 2019. At this stage of the project, it is necessary to close parking lot 51 North in order to conduct drainage improvements. Parking lot 51 North will be closed through the end of October. The overall project is expected to be complete by the end of December 2019, and no shipment availability delays are expected as a result of the project.
While on the facility drivers should maintain safe speeds, be aware of construction crews working in the area, and obey all temporary changes in traffic patterns.
We encourage drivers to take advantage of our ExpressNSTM Mobile Application which streamlines gate and terminal processes for our drayage community. With ExpressNSTM, drivers can verify billing, submit pre-gate information, obtain parking and pickup locations, receive electronic interchange receipts, and submit bad order information.
