Industrial Rail Line

Palmetto Railways is planning for the development of an industrial rail line to serve the Camp Hall Commerce Park in Berkeley County, South Carolina. The new rail line will connect Camp Hall Commerce Park to existing railroad right-of-way located near the Santee Cooper Cross Generating Station in Berkeley County. Palmetto Railways will construct, own and operate the rail line that is expected to open the door to greater economic development efforts to support the state of South Carolina.

The project team will provide a number of opportunities for stakeholders to learn about the project and provide input. The project team anticipates holding the next public meeting in late summer 2017.

The purpose of the Camp Hall
 Rail Project is to:

  • 1Provide access to northern and southern rail lines to spur continued economic development.
  • 2Support Camp Hall Commerce Park in Berkeley County including its primary tenant, Volvo, and future industries.
  • 3Facilitate development of the entire Camp Hall area.
  • 4Provide access to the Port of Charleston and other international ports.
