A Public-Private Partnership to Improve
Passenger & Freight Mobility
The State of Florida recently purchased 61 miles of CSX’s A Line for
the Central Florida commuter rail system (SunRail)
CSX will reinvest its entire proceeds - $432 million – in Florida
infrastructure, including:
• $198 million in S Line improvements (44+ miles new upgraded track;
15 locations - new sidings, improved connections)
• $52 million in statewide rail projects
• $40 million in connection to planned Intermodal Container Transfer
Facility at JaxPort
• Other intermodal projects that will improve freight movement to, from,
through and within Florida

Why Winter Haven?
• CSX spent nearly two years searching for a site, but chose this one
because:
– Rail frontage directly on the CSX mainline
– 1,250 Acres in a single location (318/932)
– Central to growing Florida markets (ideal location to serve both Orlando
and Tampa)
– Access to SR 60 and other highway connections
– Welcomed by City officials looking to spur economic growth/job creation
and diversify local development (by encouraging more industrial)
– Replaces long-haul truck traffic with more efficient freight rail
