LONG BEACH, Jan 5 (FAM) – The Port of Long Beach will begin public hearings next week on a draft environmental study for the proposed redevelopment of an existing rail yard into a new facility that could increase the use of “on-dock” trains, moving cargo faster while making operations more sustainable.

The Port will host the first of two public hearings at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11, at Silverado Park, 1545 W. 31st St., to gather comments on the study, released in December. The second hearing will be 6 p.m., Jan. 18, at the Port Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive.
