Document Description
NOTES: FONSI The Port of Long Beach (Port) in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), proposes that replacement of the existing Gerald Desmond Bridge, connecting Route 710 to Terminal Island, in order to: 1) provide a structurally sound seismically resistant bridge; 2) reduce approach grades; 3) provide sufficient roadway capacity to handle current and forecasted car and truck volumes; and 4) increase the vertical clearance to afford safe passage for current and new generation container ships. A bridge rehabilitation alternative and two alternative alignments are being considered, which also include integrating the new bridge with the Terminal Island East interchange and the Route 710 interchange.
