This $18,962,454 project will support the port’s plan to increase on-dock rail capacity, boost efficiency by being able to move trains in and out of the port faster and improve access to two Long Beach bulk terminals on Pier T’s eastern end. Pier T is POLB’s largest container terminal.
Located on Terminal Island at POLB, the Herzog/Stacy and Witbeck team will realign existing tracks and add a new 5,000 foot track adjacent to the realigned track from the west end of the Terminal Island (TI) Wye to the east end of the Total Terminals International (TTI) Terminal and add two siding tracks – 2,000 feet each – adjacent to the realigned TI Wye track.
Significant rail quantities consist of 10,645 feet of new ballasted track, eight turnouts, three crossovers, 17,657 tons of ballast, removal of 2,460 feet of existing track, removal of two existing turnouts, realigning and resurfacing 1,089 feet of existing track, and railway signal modifications. Additional site work includes storm drain modifications and underdrains, site perimeter fencing and gates, retaining walls, 360,000 gallons of liquid waste handling and disposal, 42,000 cubic yards of soil excavation, and new access roadways.
Work is anticipated to start in Quarter 2 of 2023 with completion by July 2024.
