L.A. port's FY08-09 spending plan sets aside dollars for Pacific Harbor Line yard relocation project


Last week, the Los Angeles Harbor Commission adopted a 2008-2009 fiscal-year budget for the Port of Los Angeles. The budget totaling $1.15 billion will increase 15 percent compared with the FY2007-08 budget.

The capital budget will total $308.7 million, up 29.2 percent year over year. Among numerous capital projects planned in FY2008-09, the port will begin design work for the relocation of Pacific Harbor Line Inc.'s (PHL) rail yard as part of the TraPac container terminal expansion project.

The port plans to relocate the yard 1.5 miles to the northeast and build a 10-acre on-dock rail facility on the site to directly load containers from ships to trains. The TraPac project also calls for updating 11 shipping berths and adding 67 acres to the terminal.

Owned by Anacostia & Pacific Co. Inc., PHL provides rail, maintenance and dispatching services to the ports of L.A. and Long Beach, Calif. The 59-mile short line interchanges with BNSF Railway Co. and Union Pacific Railroad.
