The Port of Long Beach in California will provide updates on its Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility Program during a virtual meeting on Dec. 2.
The facility is the centerpiece of the port's $1 billion rail program. It will shift more cargo to on-dock rail, where containers are moved to and from marine terminals by rail, significantly reducing trips by truck throughout the region. No cargo trucks would visit the facility. Instead, smaller train segments would be brought to the facility and joined into a full-size train, port officials said in a press release.
The first arrival, departure and storage tracks are expected to be completed in 2024, with additional tracks coming online in 2030. The project is slated to be completed in 2031.
