Construction is expected to start in 2023 for the Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility, the cornerstone of the port’s $1 billion rail program, allowing more cargo from terminals to move by train instead of by truck. The port says moving goods by rail will help curb truck traffic and be faster and greener.
The port anticipates the project to be finished in 2032, with the first set of arrival, departure and storage tracks to be done in 2024 and additional tracks to be operational in 2030.
