BNSF Alliance Intermodal Facility Expansion
A multi-phase project involving more than 1,200-acres of development, the BNSF Alliance Intermodal Facility Expansion includes reconfiguring and retrofitting the existing facility with a new three-track rubber tire gantry crane module, parking expansions, a new inbound and outbound Automated Gate System, new fueling facilities, and a new employee and administration building. Forecasted to have 1.4 million lifts per year, the new facility was designed to accommodate growth. The project also includes a six-mile mainline relocation, lead extensions, and a reconfiguration and repurposing of the existing BNSF North Yard. Future phases include a wide-span crane module to replace the existing Alliance manifest yard to the west of the existing Alliance IMF, and eventual automation with straddle carriers and stacking cranes.
