This sounds like part of CSX's efforts to clear their route running along the eastern seaboard for domestic doublestack and comes on the heels of a similar project in the Washington DC/Maryland area, including the VIrginia Ave. tunnel in DC. I have not heard of anything involving the Howard St. tunnel in Baltimore, however (or maybe it already has 20'6"+ clearance?). It would make sense since it would respond to NS's Crescent Corridor project aimed to clear from the New Orleans and Memphis gateways across the south and up into the Northeast. If CSX were not able to fully clear their route along the eastern seaboard, then they'll have to resort to an alternative route via Cincinnati but limited to serving the "western" southern states and lower Mississippi River valley, or lose a big competitive advantage to NS in the south-northeast lane. Gaining the capability to doublestack 2 domestic high-cube containers in this lane for either carrier is a big strategic move and will lead to growth from the conversion of traffic from over-the-road to rail between these two regions.
