L.A. ports seek off-site box storage

Officials from the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority and ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Calif., are studying ways to store empty containers in off-port locations to preserve the L.A. Harbor's scenic appeal.

Published reports said ACTA board members recently directed staff to identify potential off-dock storage facilities, determine ways to consolidate existing storage facilities, evaluate each proposal's operational and economic impacts, and propose an implementation plan.

ACTA officials added the empty-container initiative to the authority's "Expanded Mission," a plan approved in January that provides $3.3 million in funding to address corridor goals.
