Chief Executive Officer James C. Hanka said the agency plans to make additional
donations of surplus equipment to non-profit organizations as agency operations

Los Angeles. The agency built the
Alameda Corridor, a 20-mile-long freight rail expressway linking the ports to
the rail yards east of downtown Los Angeles.
