As someone who was on the Long Beach City Council in the late 1990s and the early 2000s when the Alameda Corridor was being completed and opened, I feel a special bond to this unique railway. The Corridor is such an important piece of the supply chain puzzle for the San Pedro Bay ports, and it’s been my honor to continue to have served on the Governing Board of ACTA, thanks to my position on the Long Beach Harbor Commission. The first 20 years are only a start for the Corridor, which addresses both goods movement and good neighbor priorities, thanks to its grade separations that both help freight to move faster and spare the community from the burden of at-grade crossings. I commend the staff at ACTA, and the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, for continuing to expand and explore the Corridor’s true potential.
