Longview’s infrastructure-focused budget

Longview’s infrastructure-focused budget

(Posted on 11/12/18)

The Port of Longview’s Board of Commissioners have approved its infrastructure-focused 2019 Budget, which includes significant investments in the expansion of the Port’s Industrial Rail Corridor (IRC) and cargo handling infrastructure.

The IRC plays a critical role in the efficient movement of cargo throughout the region by connecting mainline rail directly with the Port. The expansion will add six additional tracks to the system, bringing the IRC to a total of eight tracks. This additional capacity will allow trains to move simultaneously, add storage for unit trains on sidings and accommodate the growing length of trains. Within the new budget, the Port plans to invest $800,000 towards permitting, environmental and engineering for the expansion. Additionally, the Port will pursue more than $200,000 in added upgrades to existing rail infrastructure within the Port.

Also in 2019, the Port will maintain its momentum on the Berth 4 Revitalization project. Having recently completed the hazard mitigation assessment and demolition plan for the former Continental Grain silos, in 2019 the Port will conclude a vehicle and rail transportation analysis that will inform the movement of freight through the Port. The Port anticipates issuing a Request for Proposals for Berth 4 to interested parties in 2019.

On the cargo front, Commissioners approved upgrades to buildings and equipment that facilitate cargo handling on the waterfront. Improved bulk cargo environmental systems and controls make up much of the figure, which is rounded out by two new lift trucks to accommodate break bulk commodities.

Overall, the Port with invest approximately $10 million in infrastructure in 2019 and anticipates a strong year with operating revenues breaking $36 million.

Operating since 1921, the Port of Longview has 8 marine terminals and waterfront industrial property spanning 835 acres on the deep-draft Columbia River, 66 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Southwest Washington state.
