MCKEES ROCKS, Pa.

CSX Corp. plans to build a $50 million truck-to-train freight transfer station in one of Pittsburgh’s poorest suburbs.

Officials in McKees Rocks hope the mile-long facility, which stretches into neighboring Stowe Township along the Ohio River, will jumpstart plans for a business park next to it.

The 70-acre facility will be used to transfer cargo containers between trucks and rail cars. Construction on the former Pennsylvania & Lake Erie Railroad maintenance site is expected to begin in 2015 and take two years.

CSX says the project will create 360 construction jobs, 80 transportation jobs on the site and 100 related jobs.
