Since 2000, the North Carolina Railroad Company has invested more than $80 million to improve the railroad by adding tracks, replacing bridges, and enhancing safety. The Company partners with Norfolk Southern, North Carolina Department of Transportation and local communities on many projects. Safety and proper implementation are key when making these improvements.
Design and construction of ALL projects on the North Carolina Railroad must follow certain guidelines and procedures. These criteria are outlined in the documents here. If you have questions regarding these procedures, please contact Jim Kessler, P.E., Vice President-Engineering.
Please submit a Right of Entry application before beginning any work, including surveying, geo-technical, design, etc. in the NCRR corridor.
If your application is approved, a formal right of entry agreement is required among the parties. Because rights of entry applications and agreements may require a lengthy process, we ask that all requests be submitted to us well in advance of your requested entry date so proper planning can be made. Please complete the application and return via U.S. Mail (to 2809 Highwoods Blvd., Raleigh, NC 27604) to the attention of Justin Madigan, Infrastructure Manager.
