Join Port for Rail Project Update Sept. 4
Quarterly meeting shares news on Pier B facility
August 21, 2019
Learn about progress on the Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility Program during a community meeting at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4, at the Long Beach Multi-Service Center, 1301 W. 12th St.
The Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility is the centerpiece of the Port of Long Beach’s $1 billion rail program. It will shift more cargo to “on-dock rail,” where containers are placed directly on trains at marine terminals, significantly reducing trips by trucks throughout the region. No cargo trucks would visit the facility. Instead, smaller train segments would be brought to the facility and joined together into a full-sized train.
The first arrival, departure and storage tracks are expected to be completed in 2024, with additional tracks coming online in 2030, followed by project completion in 2032.
