GREER, S.C. -

Upstate residents are getting a chance to learn more about the Inland Port that's currently under construction in Greer.

There will be a public information session Friday at the Cannon Centre. The event will have a drop-in format, starting with an open house at 11:30 a.m. Starting at noon, officials from the SC Ports Authority and Norfolk Southern will give a presentation on the project. They'll share information about the new port's design, timeline, transportation routing, and what benefits it will provide the local community.

Following the presentation, there will be another hour for residents to look over the information provided and ask questions about the project. In addition to Norfolk Souther and the Ports Authority, officials from the City of Greer, the Greer Commission of Public Works, and the SC Department of Transportation will be on hand.

Officials broke ground on the Inland Port in March, with plans for a September 2013 opening. The Inland Port will extend the reach of the Ports Authority's marine facilities more than 200 miles to the interior in the heart of the Southeast region's fastest-growing area - the I-85 corridor.

It will be linked to the Port of Charleston by a Norfolk Southern main rail line, helping improve the efficiency of international freight movements between the port and companies across the Southeast.
