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 held a public information open house on Tuesday, July 11, 2017, at Cross High School in the gym to provide information gathered to date related to the Camp Hall Rail project, including the rail alignment alternatives and preferred alignment. Your participation is very important to us. If you were not available to meet in person, you can view all meeting materials and maps on the Resources page

The purpose of the Camp Hall
 Rail Project is to:

Locate, build, own and operate an industrial rail line that will connect to the existing Class 1 rail line with the Camp Hall Commerce Park. The need for the Proposed Project derives from the development within the Camp Hall Commerce Park, which has increased the demand for rail service to interconnect the commerce park with an existing Class 1 rail network, South Carolina, in a manner that is logistically feasible to better serve the need of the future tenants and industry within the Camp Hall Commerce Park for transportation, distribution, and logistics. These tenants include, but are not limited to, Volvo Cars, as well as any associated support industries that might desire to locate in proximity to Volvo Cars in the future.
