There's some great news for drivers in Greenville who get tried of train delays -- there's now federal money to move the downtown switching yard for CSX.
Congressman Walter Jones announced Thursday that a nearly $1-million federal grant will help fund the move.
The downtown switching yard often causes three major streets in Greenville to be closed for long periods of time. The D.O.T. says some of those closures can last up to three hours.
CSX plans to move the rail yard outside of downtown and construct a "Y" connection to allow the easier flow of rail traffic.
Total cost of the project is some $9-million, with other funds coming from the North Carolina D.O.T., the City of Greenville and CSX.
