Port of Long Beach unveils draft environmental impact study for rail yard project

The Port of Long Beach, Calif., late last week released a draft environmental study on a plan to redevelop a rail yard to allow for the assembly of longer trains in the Harbor District.

The proposed Pier B on-dock rail support facility would shift more cargo to on-dock rail, port officials said in a press release. The yard would be operated by Pacific Harbor Line Inc.

"The proposed development would enhance the efficiency of goods movement at the Port of Long Beach," said Interim Chief Executive Duane Kenagy. "This project is vital to our efforts to modernize the port and continue to lead the way in environmental sustainability."

Port officials will host hearings on Jan. 11 and Jan. 18, 2017, to offer the public an opportunity to comment on the draft document.
