BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) – Palmetto Railways has started construction on a rail line that will service the Camp Hall Commerce Park and Volvo’s plant in Berkeley County.
Palmetto Railways President and CEO Patrick McCrory said the 25-mile rail line will connect to an existing CSX rail line near the Santee Cooper Cross Generating Station in Cross.
“This line is really intended to serve the U.S. domestic market, so from here to New York, New Jersey, from here to Los Angeles, across the country and all in between,” McCrory said. “That’s kind of our focus for the volumes. Capacity is – it’s a main line. It can be used for any levels of capacity.”
Camp Hall will soon be home to the largest investment in South Carolina history in Redwood Materials, who revealed a $3.5 billion campus several months ago, and is the current home of Volvo’s plant.
