LONG BEACH : Port to Spend Half of Budget for Expansion

The Port of Long Beach will spend more than half of its 1994-95 budget to build truck overpasses, increase rail access, enlarge a terminal and buy land.

The $417-million spending plan, approved by the City Council and the Board of Harbor Commissioners, allocates $236.5 million for port expansion.

Port officials agreed to spend $60 million on overpasses that will run above railways so trains and trucks will not have to stop for one another when delivering or removing cargo from the port's seven docks.

Dockside rail access to the International Transportation Services Terminal will be expanded at a cost of $45 million to better accommodate trains.
