Growing Alabama Credit spurs $3 million investment at Etowah mega-site

GADSDEN, Alabama – The Growing Alabama Credit program is helping accelerate improvements at the Little Canoe Creek Mega-Site through a $5.7 million, multi-phase project facilitated by a partnership between Norfolk Southern Corp., the Etowah County Commission and the State of Alabama.

Railroad company Norfolk Southern is funding Phase II of the improvements at the 1,000-acre site with a $3 million donation. This phase is in addition to site development work that began in 2020 when Norfolk Southern provided $2.7 million in funding through the program.

Phase I of the project includes construction of a 70-acre, pad-ready, rail-served site, relocation of natural gas lines, installation of a new railroad crossing, and extension of the site’s industrial access road.

“On behalf of the County Commission, I’d like to extend our sincere thanks to both Norfolk Southern Corp. and the State of Alabama for making these improvements possible,” said Jamie Grant, the commission’s president.
