Work on the $275 million West Vancouver Freight Access project's rail entrance, dubbed the project's "crown jewel," has moved on to the second phase at the Port of Vancouver USA in Washington state. A $38 million set of structures and reconfiguration of tracks will allow trains to pass under the BNSF bridge across the Columbia River between Portland, Ore., and Vancouver, Wash., according to port officials. "The new entrance is a game changer," said Todd Coleman, the port's CEO. "Cargoes such as wheat, steel pipe, wood pulp and automobiles will move into and out of the port more efficiently and that's good for our region."
