Why we love the harbor freight chino
Los Angeles is the epicenter of California’s port and railroad history.
But as the state continues to grapple with an earthquake and a tsunami, some of the city’s most iconic landmarks are now being shuttered for safety reasons.
(Published Monday, Aug. 6, 2019)The port, home to a major steel mill and rail yards, was the hub of the California coast for hundreds of years before the advent of the railroad in 1879.
But the rail yards in Chico, Fresno and San Francisco were built to handle freight from Los Angeles to the Pacific Northwest.
The closure of the rail yard in Chino was announced Monday, the same day California Gov.
Gavin Newsom announced that all rail and container ship traffic from Los Angles will be restricted from Sunday through Monday.
The rail yards are being closed from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the port will be closed from 9 a.ms. to 6 p.
