CSX Transportation, Incorporated seeks approval of the proposed modification of the traffic control system at South Wye, milepost ANA 587.80, near Waycross, Georgia, on the Jesup Subdivision, Jacksonville Service Lane.

The reason given for the proposed changes is to eliminate facilities no longer needed in present day operation.

Additionally, one copy of the protest shall be furnished to the applicant at the address listed above.
