Expanding its onsite multimodal capabilities as well as its time and cost advantages for goods movement, the Southern California Rail Complex (SCRC) is a planned 3,500-acre intermodal and multimodal rail and container storage complex with 60 million square feet of planned commercial development.
The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) complying with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) was approved in April 2004. The rail complex will provide relief and additional capacity to the congested intermodal rail facilities and seaports within the Southern California region.
Planned Rail Development:
- 430-acre intermodal yard, including a 50-acre site for the Agile Port Demonstration Project
- 585-acre rail-served multimodal facility
- 1,000 acres of rail-served industrial sites
- Ability to process more than 1.5 million lifts annually
BNSF Railway Exploring Intermodal Facility
In January 2007, City of Victorville officials executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the BNSF Railway Company (BNSF), setting the stage to explore the development of a major intermodal logistics facility at Global Access. The development of the intermodal facility will be a critical component in the overall development of the 3,500-acre Southern California Rail Complex at Global Access.
