Construction of the $275 million West Vancouver Freight Access project at Washington state's Port of Vancouver USA is 50% complete, said port commission president Jerry Oliver. Work includes the creation of dual-rail access into the port through BNSF and Union Pacific services. "We've made great progress since breaking ground in 2008. We've constructed a state-of-the-industry loop track that allows us to handle unit trains that are more than 100 cars long -- the standard for moving freight to a growing global market," Oliver said.
