Skip Kalb BNSF Presentation to the IRWA

Skip Kalb BNSF Presentation to the IRWA

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2,990|Likes:
This is one of six presentations by BNSF Director of Strategic Development of the BNSF Railroad, in which he says that the proposed Gardner Intermodal rail and truck yard will have an "Initial capacity of 650,000 lifts; scalable to 1.5 million (ocean container) lifts".

In the Environmental Assessment (EA) provided to the US Army Corps of Engineers, BNSF say the facility will be scalable to only 1 million container lifts.

They based the EA projections of number of heavy diesel truck and car trips and air pollution emissions on the even lower number of 870,000 container lifts per year.

Because of this apparent misstatement of fact, the actual trip generation and air pollution would be at least 83 percent higher than projected by BNSF in the Environmental Assessment.

These presentations were made by Skip Kalb and other BNSF representatives in 2007, 2008, and 2009, both before and after the Environmental Assessment figures were generated.

This presentation was given to the International Right of Way Association on September 7, 2007 As of today, 091209, the presentation is available at the URL http://www.irwachapter5.org/adobe_acrobat/irwa_optimized9.21.07.pdf

A memo providing additional details can be found at http://tinyurl.com/bnsf-containers

The proposed BNSF rail and truck yard is less than one mile from Gardner High School and a residential neighborhood.
