Temporary Ingate Closures for Service Into and Out of Chicago 63rd

Dec 14, 2020

Due to severe congestion and operational necessity, effective at 8:00 pm local time, we will close ingates to all domestic local and interline shipments in the following lanes:

  • Chicago 63rd <> Pittsburgh
  • Chicago 63rd <> Toledo
  • Chicago 63rd <> Buffalo

In anticipation of an approaching winter storm in the Northeast, effective at 8:00 pm local time, the ingates will also close to all domestic local and interline shipments in the following lanes:

  • Chicago 63rd <> Croxton
  • Chicago 63rd <> Rutherford

We are closely monitoring the forecasted inclement weather and may announce additional gate closures tomorrow for traffic destined to Harrisburg, Bethlehem, and Erail.

The Chicago 63rd Intermodal facility will remain open during the ingate closures, and we encourage customers to outgate equipment from the facility in order to increase parking capacity.
