“Edgecombe County: The 76-acre Bulluck Tract South Site is located an hour east of Research Triangle Park and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and just minutes from Interstate 95. Within an easy 2-hour drive from ports in both Norfolk, Va., and Wilmington, the site features more than half of a mile of CSX mainline rail frontage, is adjacent to the CSX Rocky Mount Terminal and is less than 10 miles from the new CSX Carolina Connector Intermodal Terminal. With abundant utilities in place, including Duke Energy Progress distribution and transmission lines on site, the site is ideal for industrial manufacturing and distribution.

“The Duke Energy Site Readiness Program has been a great asset to Edgecombe County’s economic development efforts. The program assembled expertise from the site selection, civil engineering, utility, economic development and landowner groups all for the purpose of advancing a common economic growth vision. We are extremely thankful for the support of Duke Energy and their commitment to proactive community engagement.” – Oppie Jordan, Director, Vice President, Edgecombe County Carolinas Gateway Partnership”
