Port of Long Beach receives $52 million for rail project

It’s about time that Long Beach is able to provide on-dock container rail handling. Drayage trucks have been a massive source of pollution in the area since the 1990s. Even the Clean Trucks initiative, helpful though it was, can’t keep the particulates and other noxious elements of diesel exhaust down. The proper solution is on-dock rail.

Though this won’t touch the total cost of the project, it’s enough to get it going. It can certainly fund studies and preliminary work.

The time frame isn’t till 2025 for the first trains, though.
