New York/New Jersey port authority to expand less-than-year-old intermodal facility


The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey plans soon to award a contract to expand track capacity at the Elizabeth-Port Authority Marine Terminal on-dock rail facility, which opened in October 2004.

The contract will include demolishing four buildings and constructing two tracks. The facility currently features eight tracks; when complete in 2009, the project will expand the facility to 18 tracks.

"This contract is part of our continuing commitment to expand our rail capacity as quickly as possible to handle our port’s projected cargo growth," said Port Authority Chairman Anthony Coscia in a prepared statement.
