The Port of New Orleans is moving forward with construction of a $13.3 million intermodal terminal slated for completion in 2016. Six Class I railroads serve the port, which will also be adding additional track. "We are thrilled to see this project moving forward," said Gary LaGrange, the port's president and CEO. "New Orleans is the only U.S. seaport [served by] all six U.S. Class I's with 132,000 miles of connecting rail tracks."
