Was out and around central CT today for work and had the opportunity to visit RED in Portland CT...
Spur recently rebuilt by the PWRR using concrete ties is ready to go, but RED is still waiting for state permitting approval to use the spur and to erect a structure over the spur. There was no sign of re-construction at the old USA C&D operation, totally shut down after the roof collapse.
Also, the old Smurfit-Stone building appears to be in use by someone, but no signs that rail is at all involved in whatever operation has taken over the building.
