Along with the announcement, the department released a video showing railroad projects being completed along the Raleigh-Charlotte corridor.

The Piedmont program calls for a slew of rail improvements, such as adding 31 miles of parallel track to serve both freight and passenger trains; closing 38 public and private grade crossings; and renovating train stations in Burlington, Cary, High Point and Kannapolis. NCDOT also will build 12 roadway bridges to carry traffic over or under tracks.
