Port officials awarded two multimillion-dollar contracts at a recent board meeting of harbor commissioners.
Herzog Contracting Corp. of Missouri won a $7.2-million contract to realign Terminal Way and raise the street over the railway.
The 15-month project scheduled to begin April 1 is expected to create 119 direct and spin-off jobs.
California contractor L. B. Foster Co. won another contract for about $8 million to manufacture special rail track needed for the port's Pier 300/400 expansion project.
The 10,000 tons of rail will be used for switches, crossovers and safety devices for five railway projects, said Bruce Seaton, director of construction management at the port.
