Port Receives $10 Million Federal Grant to Upgrade Terminal

A $10 million federal grant will improve cargo operations through San Diego’s 10th Avenue Marine Terminal, the Port of San Diego said.

The so-called TIGER grant will go toward a $22.1 million project to improve the terminal. Work will include the removal of some 1950s-era transit sheds near the deep-water berths on the far southwest side of the terminal. Port officials consider the sheds obsolete, and say an open area would be more useful. Also planned are more rail facilities.

Michael J. Rodriguez, a high-ranking U.S. Department of Transportation official, was in San Diego to present the grant Oct. 30.

The project still needs environmental review.

TIGER stands for Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery.
