My Memory of Alameda Corridor…I started my career at the Port of Long Beach back in 1988.  I can remember driving in the 1980’s and 1990’s and seeing the curvy tracks along Alameda Street.  The curvy tracks along Alameda Street started at the Ports and ended in East Los Angeles.  This was the reason it took several hours to get a train from East Los Angeles to the Port complex.  The twin Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles created the Alameda Corridor and I was part of it.  As representative from the Port of Long Beach, I would attend many, many meetings for the planning, construction and oversight of operations of the Alameda Corridor.   I attended the grand opening of the Alameda Corridor back in April 2002 and the Redondo Junction dedication.  I can remember the USC Marching Band playing at the event.
