CSX Corp. has chosen a site in McKees Rocks and Stowe Township to build a new $50 million intermodal facility.

The company estimated the Pittsburgh Intermodal Facility will bring 360 jobs during construction. Once complete, it will employ about 40 on-site 40 intermodal workers, as well as support 100 indirect jobs throughout the region.

The site has a long history for rail as the former Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Yard.

According to the Jacksonville, Fla.-based company, CSX is working to finish planning, design, permitting and property acquisition for a 65- to 70-acre property in 2014. A two-year construction plan would start in 2015.
