US$250m rail freight project is nearly finished at Port of Vancouver, WA


The US port of Vancouver in Washington state has almost wrapped up the construction of its US$250 million freight rail infrastructure project, dubbed the West Vancouver Freight Access project (WVFA) that commenced a decade ago, according to Shipping Gazette.
The project is expected to be fully completed by early 2018, the port said in a statement.
The WVFA involves improving freight rail movements through the port and along the BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad mainlines, connecting the region with major rail hubs from Canada to Mexico, reported American Shipper.
The project includes construction of the Kinder Morgan bulk unloading facility and improvements to the grain track unit train.
The improvement works will enlarge the facility in a new location and adjoin rail tracks in the old location to facilitate other projects in the WVFA series, said the port.
The grain track unit train improvements will increase efficiency by building a new lead track from the port's south entrance and additional load tracks for grain trains, raising the port's overall rail capacity.
