Project receives widespread support from shippers
The Port of Quincy is requesting $16.2 million in transportation funding from the Washington State Legislature to expand the infrastructure at its Intermodal Terminal to help restore critical domestic eastbound intermodal rail service.
The Port of Quincy Intermodal Terminal Infrastructure Expansion Project has received widespread support with dozens of shippers and organizations sending letters to the Washington State Legislature in support of the request.
The Port of Quincy Intermodal Terminal is located in Central Washington on a key cross-country rail mainline (Seattle-Chicago Northern Corridor BNSF mainline) and near a major interstate freeway and in the heart of one of the largest irrigated agricultural and food processing regions in North America. In 2011, Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway designated Quincy, Washington as an official intermodal terminal on its national intermodal map.
The Project would expand the infrastructure at the Port of Quincy Intermodal Terminal to meet unit train requirements of BNSF. In particular, the Expansion Project would include installation of three additional intermodal tracks to increase the capacity of the terminal to be able to simultaneously load or unload longer intermodal container trains.
