A new project in Lenoir County could help boost its local economy.
The Department of Transportation held a meeting in Kinston Thursday night about a proposed project to provide the Global Transpark with rail access.
The DOT says building the 33 million dollar project is a critical link to the Global Transpark, providing rail service to the park for businesses like Spirit Aerosystems. Spirit is expecting to bring more than 1,000 jobs.
The DOT says they will accept comments on this project until March 9th.
