Will Oakland go along with Crows Landing?

According to "Engineering rail's rebirth" (Aug. 26, Page A-1), officials at the Port of Oakland, a key player in the Crows Landing project, are pushing improvements for their long-haul Class I rail partners, the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroads. While port officials support short-haul rail in concept, they aren't ready to commit money to Crows Landing or any other potential inland port.

So why do the Board of Supervisors continue to put their trust in the PCCP West Park Kamilos proposal? The board voted to continue support Aug. 28.
