At their monthly meeting Thursday, the commissioners of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey authorized expenditure of $3 million for planning and preliminary design work for the development of an intermodal container transfer facility at the Greenville Yard-Port Authority Marine Terminal in Jersey City.
The port authority plans to develop an ExpressRail facility on the Greenville Yards that the commissioners authorized it to buy and redevelop in May.

NY-NJ Port Plans Environmental Study.
The expanded rail yard could handle up to 250,000 containers per year.
With expected completion in 2013, the new facility will help remove as many as 360,000 trash trucks annually from trans-Hudson crossings and New Jersey highways by moving New York City sealed containerized solid waste and other commodities by barge and rail.
