Document Description
The proposed project would construct a 160-acre marine terminal on Pier S. Dredge and fill activities would involve dike realignment, berth deepening, wharf construction, and channel widening. Construction of the wharf would include excavation of the existing shoreline to straighten the shoreline and widen the Cerritos Channel between the Pier A and future Pier S pier head lines to accommodate the passage of modern container vessels through the channel. Widening of the Cerritos Channel would create approximately 10.3 acres of new water surface area. Wharf excavation would include removing approximately 1,500,000 cubic yards of material and reconstructing the shoreline with imported quarry run and armor rock. In addition to wharf excavation, approximately 600,000 cubic yards of material that may or may not be suitable for unconfined aquatic disposal would be dredged from the Cerritos Channel for ship berthing. Dredging of the Back Channel would be conducted to extend the navigable width of the channel to approximately 315 feet at the full dredge depth. Approximately 250,000 cy of material below MLLW (including materials that are either suitable or unsuitable for open ocean disposal) would be dredged from designated side walls of the Back Channel and Inner Harbor Turning Basin at the intersection of the Back and Cerritos channels to facilitate the navigation of ships expected to serve Piers A, B, C, and S. The minimum and maximum dredge depths in the Cerritos Channel, Back Channel, and Inner Harbor Turning Basin would be -52 feet MLLW and -54 feet MLLW, respectively. The maximum dredge depth of -54 feet MLLW includes a 2-foot allowance over the target depth of -52 feet MLLW. The terminal would include buildings, facilities, truck gates and other structures needed to support container terminal operations and administration. The terminal would include an intermodal rail yard facility consisting of eight tracks.
