Project Description

This Project includes Phase II of terminal rail upgrades and a warehouse relocation. Phase I involved rehabilitation and approximately 800 feet of new track for the existing rail line that runs parallel to the Phase II new track but about 150 yards closer to the water. Phase I reached substantial completion in May 2016. These rail upgrades are part of the Seaport Modernization Program, a program developed as part of the Marine Terminals Master Plan approved in 2008. This program includes strengthening and expanding docks to add a minimum of 300 feet of capacity to meet 21st century shipping demands.
The RRIF direct loan provides approximately 3,300 lineal feet of on-terminal working track. Elements of the work included demolition of existing pavement, trenching, excavation, removing and realigning existing underground utilities, four new turnouts, encasing existing utilities to remain under tracks, installation of a new storm drainage system, backfill and compaction, new track bed and ballast, track construction, paving, restoration and striping. The warehouse portion of the Project will relocate a 39,000-square foot warehouse for use to provide cover for rail cargo. Once relocated, the warehouse will become part of the Port's railcar unloading facility.
