One of the railroad’s owners, CSX, will soon navigate the Chicago area easier thanks to a Belt enhancement at Hayford Interlocking.
CSX has to go through the Belt’s facility to get to its intermodal yard in Bedford Park. An ongoing project that started last fall will allow CSX its own track to do so.
When a cutover is performed this spring, the newly constructed track will be placed in service. The result will be less interference and smother operations for all concerned.
Belt Signal and Communication employees are working in conjunction with CSX on the project. The project will require coordination between the two railroads so as to have minimal impact on Belt operations.
