(Source: Norfolk Southern service alert, September 12, 2017)

NORFOLK, Va. — Effective immediately the ingate is open for shipments originating at the Jacksonville Intermodal facility. To enhance velocity through the facility, drivers ingating shipments will be required to also outgate a shipment. Drivers should exercise caution when arriving and departing the Jacksonville facility as downed-trees, localized flooding, and malfunctioning crossing-arms have been reported.

Effective 12:01am tomorrow, Wednesday September 13th, the embargo on shipments billed to Jacksonville, Savannah-Garden City, and all FEC destinations will be lifted.
