California Supreme Court Upholds Appeals Court Ruling in Favor of SCIG

After 13 years, tens of thousands of pages of analysis and intensive review by the courts, on April 11, 2018, the California Supreme Court denied a petition to review the Court of Appeal’s January 2018 decision, which upheld most of the environmental impact report (EIR) for the Southern California International Gateway (SCIG) near-dock intermodal rail


Southern California International Gateway (SCIG)

The Southern California International Gateway (SCIG) would have been a $500+ million investment by BNSF to build a new, state of the art intermodal railyard facility located within four miles of the San Pedro Bay ports, resulting in improvement of both traffic congestion and air quality in the region. BNSF committed to making SCIG the greenest intermodal facility in the U.S., by investing more than $130 million in green technology, including electric cranes, ultra-low emissions switching locomotives and liquefied natural gas (LNG) or equivalent yard equipment.
