Docket No. EP 742

 

PUBLIC LISTENING SESSION

REGARDING CSX TRANSPORTATION, INC.’S RAIL SERVICE ISSUES

 

Decided:  September 6, 2017

 

By decision served on August 24, 2017, the Board scheduled a public listening session for September 12, 2017, beginning at 9:30 a.m., at its offices in Washington, D.C., to hear from CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) on its efforts to implement its new operating plan and to address service problems on its network, to provide shippers the opportunity to report on recent CSXT rail service issues they have experienced, and to discuss whether additional service recovery efforts may be necessary.

 

Since the scheduling of the listening session, Hurricane Irma, a potentially catastrophic Category 5 hurricane, has developed in the Caribbean and is currently projected to make landfall in the state of Florida, where CSXT’s headquarters is located, in the early morning of Monday, September 11, 2017.  The Board understands that CSXT and many rail shippers are currently focused on hurricane preparedness efforts in areas that could be affected by the storm, and does not want to divert attention or resources from those necessary activities.  The storm may also affect other parts of the southeast United States, where other parties interested in participating in the listening session may be located.

 

Therefore, the Board will postpone the scheduled listening session to better ensure that CSXT and all interested parties have the opportunity to participate.  The Board will reschedule the listening session as soon as practicable.

 

 

It is ordered:

 

1.  The public listening session scheduled for Tuesday, September 12, 2017, at 9:30 a.m., is postponed.  It will be rescheduled as soon as practicable.

 

            2.  This decision is effective on its service date.

 

By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings.
