Southern California International Gateway Railyard Found to Have Faulty Environmental Impact Report

The controversial BNSF Southern California International Gateway (SCIG) railway project, one that would have placed a high-volume transport facility servicing the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) right next to West Long Beach communities and schools, was dealt a setback today when Contra Costa County Superior Court found that the environmental impact report (EIR) lacked adequate analysis instructing the POLA to conduct a new EIR.
