Kingsboro Mega-Site Infrastructure (A CSX Select Site)

Carolinas Gateway Partnership
Program Area:
Major Site Development Initiative
County of Applicant:

This grant provides funding to the Carolinas Gateway Partnership to construct water, wastewater, and road access improvements that will serve the 1,449-acre Kingsboro Mega-Site in Edgecombe County, and to conduct a groundwater study at the site. The site is located on US 64 between Rocky Mount and Tarboro and within 10 minutes of I-95 and the recently announced CSX Carolina Connector transmodal shipping site. The Kingsboro site has been seriously considered by several large projects, including automobile and tire manufacturing companies, among others, which each would have created between 500 and 1,000 jobs. It is a certified mega site and, with 10,000 of rail frontage, is also a CSX Select Site.
