The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is planning to undertake construction of Southeast High Speed Rail (SEHSR) Corridor project in Charlotte, Carolina, the US.

The project involves the construction of High Speed Rail Corridor which is planned to be executed in different sections. The major sections of SESHR are: Washington DC to Charlotte NC, Richmond to Hampton Roads, Charlotte Atlanta to Jacksonville, and Raleigh Columbia to Jacksonville.

The project will include the development of transport infrastructure. It will also include the construction of railways station, 100-bridges and related infrastructure, the installation of signalling systems, and the laying of 261km rail tracks and transmission line.

The project extends from Washington DC south through Richmond and Petersburg in Virginia through Raleigh and Charlotte in North Carolina.
