The CSX Intermodal Rail yard west of North Baltimore has meant much activity in and around the entire SouthWood region. North Baltimore, which lies directly between the rail yard and Interstate 75, on Ohio Route 18, has seen the bulk of the increase in traffic. The contractor is Savko, based in Columbus, Ohio. Savko has rapidly enclosed the compound, moving huge quantities of prime Black Swamp Clay, into large mounds on the west and south sides. The site is abutted by the rail lines on the north and main staging area on Liberty High Road on the east.

show some photos of the $170,000,000 intermodal yard construction project.
Security is very high in and around The water tower was installed by the

A concrete batch plant was built on site. Supplying this operation
was the reason for much of the heavy truck traffic on SR 18/Main Street.

This is looking southeast from the north side of the now closed
crossing at Wingston Road.
Looks to me like a couple miles of chain link fence have been strung.
