PREVIOUSLY: Board to Meet September 15 to Prep for Long Beach Port’s Modernization and Expansion Project
09/07/15 at 3:26PM | The Intermodal Container Transfer Facility (ICTF) Joint Powers Authority’s (JPA) governing board is set to meet Tuesday, September 15 at 6:00PM at Silverado Park School hall to discuss the status of the ICTF’s Modernization and Expansion Project. Particularly, the meeting will go over the preparation and future release of the project’s Environmental Impact Report (EIR).
Because the draft EIR is still being written, a release issued by the Port of Long Beach (POLB) states that further details regarding elements of the project will be discussed at a future meeting.
The Modernization and Expansion Project is aimed at more than doubling the throughput capacity of the ICTF from 725,000 to 1.5 million containers per year, the POLB release stated. The project is also projected to add in environmental improvements that include using electric overhead cranes, cleaner yard tractors and low-emission locomotives.
Previously, a Notice of Preparation/Initial Study (NOP/IS) was released, describing potential environmental impacts that would occur as a result of the project’s implementation.
