About Modernization Project

In December 2007, Union Pacific submitted to the JPA an Application for Development Project (ADP) to modernize the ICTF.  The application was reviewed by the JPA and staff from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and determined to be complete as described in a memo to the JPA Governing Board dated February 12, 2008.

The proposed modernization would include the construction of additional working rail tracks, the construction of a new gate facility, the improvement of existing gate facilities, and additional parking.  The proposed Project would more than double the throughput capacity of the ICTF from 725,000 to 1.5 million containers per year.  The proposed Project would incorporate a number of environmental improvements including the use of electric overhead cranes, cleaner hostling tractors, and ultra low emissions locomotives.
