Virginia International Gateway/Commonwealth Railway Marshalling Yard Expansion
The project consists of developing additional on-dock rail capacity at the Virginia International Gateway
for the purposes of transferring containerized cargo between rail service and ship lines. Increased capacity will be
achieved through the construction of new track and associated infrastructure configured to allow loading and unloading of containers by terminal container handling equipment. The primary objective of this project is to increase VIG’s container throughput to approximately 40% of the full build-out capacity of the terminal. A marshalling yard expansion outside the terminal is also needed to accommodate the additional rail throughput.
