ACTA

Image

The Alameda Corridor is a 20-mile stretch in southern Los Angeles County, California, running from Long Beach and Los Angeles north to downtown Los Angeles.

In the mid-1980s, a plan was formed to improve cargo rail service between the transcontinental rail yards east of Los Angeles and the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The objective of the corridor was to increase the speed of the cargo trains by directing surface traffic over or under the track. The benefits of the corridor included additional volume of rail traffic, reduced delays to street traffic, and increased quality of life along the rail route. The Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority (ACTA) was formed to manage this immense project.

A major part of the project was accomplished by creating a 10-mile long trench, 33 feet deep by 50 feet wide, running directly down the middle of Alameda Street. It accommodates three rails. Construction included the removal of 4 million cubic yards of dirt, the relocation of several Native American burial sites, the construction of 29 new street crossings bridges, and the relocation of more than 3000 underground utility lines...an amazing engineering feat.

The $2.4 billion investment for the Alameda Corridor project ranked it at the time among the largest public infrastructure projects under construction in the United States. The corridor began operation in April of 2002 and today it allows more than 1200 trains a month to move quickly between the ports and downtown Los Angeles.

BNSF Railway

Image

Today's BNSF Railway is the product of nearly 400 different railroad lines that merged or were acquired over the course of 160 years.

While many different railroads combined to form BNSF, the people who worked at those railroads shared many traits. The people who built BNSF were — and continue to be — a unique breed, blending the forward-thinking of dreamers with the pragmatism of results-oriented business leaders. This heritage played a central role in settling and growing the American West, and today, BNSF continues to have a significant impact in meeting the needs of shippers and serving the economy.

MRCOG

Image

The Mid-Region Council of Governments is a multi-county governmental agency that is helping our region plan responsibly for the future, in light of anticipated growth in New Mexico's mid-region. Representing the counties of Bernalillo, Valencia, Torrance, and Sandoval, we provide planning services in the areas of transportation, agriculture, workforce development, employment growth, land-use, water, and economic development.

We also provide a forum for groups and individual communities to meet and address regional issues. By working together as a region, we're able to identify and implement short and long term policy decisions that are critical to a healthy community and prosperous New Mexico.

Much of the transportation planning support we provide to the outlying areas of the region occurs through the Rural Transportation Planning Organization, and to the urban core through the Metropolitan Planning Organization. The majority of data collection and analysis work is performed region-wide and can be customized to meet individual needs.

NCTD

Image

The North San Diego County Transit Development Board (NSDCTDB) was created by California Senate Bill 802 on September 20, 1975. The Board was created to plan, construct and operate, directly, or through a contractor, public transit systems in its area of jurisdiction.

On January 1, 2003, a new state law was enacted (SB 1703) that essentially transferred future transit planning, programming, development and construction to SANDAG, San Diego's regional planning agency. The NSDCTDB, referred to as the North County Transit District (NCTD), continued to operate the BREEZE, COASTER and SPRINTER. In this new role, NCTD continues to provide integrated public transit service within the North San Diego County region.

Specialized terminals also move petroleum, automobiles, cement, lumber, steel and other products.

A major economic force, the Port supports more than 30,000 jobs in Long Beach, 316,000 jobs throughout Southern California and 1.4 million jobs throughout the United States. It generates about $16 billion in annual trade-related wages statewide.
