View all projects

Project

This project will increase on-dock intermodal railyard capacity by a projected 520,000 TEUs. This enables more cargo to be loaded onto trains via the on-dock railyard within the terminal instead of off-dock railyards. Shifting the loading of these containers to ondock rail enables the BNSF railway and Union Pacific Railroad to transport import and export containers to/from the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the rest of the nation in a safer, more efficient, rapid, and cost-effective manner, via the Alameda Corridor. The project cost is approximately $40.5 million and the Port is receiving a grant totaling $18.2 million dollars from the Fiscal Year 2019 United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIPD). Design completion is scheduled for early 2022.
