Patriot Corridor Double-Stack Clearance Initiative

The Patriot Corridor is a 155-mile freight line between Mechanicville, New York and Ayer, Massachusetts.

A recent study showed that 21 bridges and 2 tunnels on the corridor are too low for trains that carry double-stacked freight containers. MassDOT’s Clearance Initiative Project (CIP) will raise the height of bridges and tunnels so these trains can use the line.
