Sen. Marco Rubio shows support for Port of Palm Beach rail infrastructure

Facilities worker working rail

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio recently wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Transportation in support of Port of Palm Beach’s application for a $13.2 million Infrastructure for Rebuilding America grant. The federal funding would allow the port to more than double its intermodal rail capacity from 44,000 TEUs per year to 95,000 TEUs per year. The project will replace old rail with new, relocate the truck interchange, and install new radiation portal monitors for increased security, all of which will allow for more efficient operations. The letter of support was sent shortly after Port of Palm Beach Executive Director Manuel Almira invited Sen. Rubio’s Regional Director Greg Langowski to the Port to discuss the rail infrastructure project.
