Port Awarded $17 million For Rail Project The Port of Long Beach was awarded $17 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation to help fund a rail track improvement project that will allow for a shift of more cargo from trucks to trains. The Green Port Gateway project, slated to begin construction in 2012, will lay 16,400 feet of new track to realign tracks and relieve a rail chokepoint at the Ocean Boulevard overcrossing near the 710 Freeway.
