CHARLESTON, SC, April 16, 2018 (Local News) -In a part of South Carolina that once relied on video poker as a major economic draw, fortunes are starting to change.

The State Ports Authority on Monday will officially open its inland port in Dillon, linking the state's Pee Dee region with the Port of Charleston via a CSX Corp. rail line that will operate six days a week.

The $50.5 million cargo-transfer hub will let trucks and trains exchange thousands of containers filled with consumer goods destined for points north along Interstate 95 or — if headed in the other direction — to any number of markets overseas.
