In addition to investing in projects that bring benefits today, BNSF is also planning for the future.
Currently, much of the freight transported through the Port of Los Angeles must travel more than
24 miles by truck to reach rail yards near downtown Los Angeles. BNSF’s proposed
– within four miles of the port – will allow trucks to travel a much
shorter distance before transferring cargo to railcars that would then travel through the Alameda
Corridor and on to destinations in the Midwest, Southeast and beyond.
By transferring cargo to rail closer to the port complex, the new facility will eliminate millions
of truck miles from California’s 710 freeway each year. The Los Angeles Harbor Commission
approved the project in March 2013. At the time of printing, the Los Angeles City Council was set
to vote on the project.
