The port in Southport

Trucks will get there easily once Interstate 174 replaces NC 211. Four lanes of access controlled interstate highway running from Bolton to Southport. CSX will also double up on the Sunny Point spur, extend it to the port and likely build a switching yard somewhere around the junction of NC 87 and 133. Sleepy ol' Southport will still be there, relatively unchanged. A mile outside Southport is going to look like Long Beach. The plans are in place, the initial designs sketched out. Our grandchildren will work at a port to rival Newark, Baltimore, or Miami.
