Track Improvements Ensure Thousands Of Jobs For Kinston

In about 18 months, the sounds of trains rolling down the tracks near Kinston will be music to people's ears.

The North Carolina railroad system has invested more than 17 million dollars for track improvements in the city. The improvements will ensure manufacturing facilities like Spirit Aerosystems and Sanderson Farms will be able to hire about 3,200 employees.

Spirit Aerosystems is currently building a 500,000 square foot manufacturing plant at the Global Transpark -- access to a new railroad system will soon be right out their backdoor and necessary to transport parts.

The track improvements are slated to be finished in about 18 months. Spirit Aerosystems is set to open its facility in the summer of 2010.
