As we mark the 20th anniversary of the Alameda Corridor, I offer my sincere thanks and gratitude to all the visionaries who had the foresight to design and build this critical infrastructure. Since it’s opening, it has been an extraordinary asset to the San Pedro Bay ports, allowing for increased use of rail at the nation’s busiest trade gateway.  It has improved safety and traffic in our region’s communities and has played a major role in our sustainability efforts as we continue to move more cargo via rail. We owe all of the leaders who worked on this project, as well as the engineers and construction workers who built the Alameda Corridor, a huge debt of gratitude. Today, the Alameda Corridor plays a critical role in our current and future plans to remain the nation’s busiest trade gateway.
