Document Description
The Deep Draft Navigation Feasibility Study and Channel Deepening Project (Project) would improve safety and navigation efficiencies for container cargo and liquid bulk vessels at the Port of Long Beach. The Project would deepen the entrance to the Main Channel (the Approach Channel through Queens Gate) from a depth of -76 feet to -80 feet mean lower low water (MLLW); widen portions of the Main Channel (bend-easing) to a depth of -76 feet MLLW; construct an approach channel and turning basin to Pier J South to a depth of -55 feet MLLW; deepen portions of the West Basin and West Basin Approach to a depth of -55 feet MLLW; deepen two additional locations within the harbor to a depth of -55 feet MLLW: the Pier J Slip, including berths J266-J270, and berth T140 on Pier T. Structural improvements would be made to the Pier J breakwaters at the entrance of the Pier J Slip to accommodate deepening of the Pier J Slip and Approach Channel to -55 feet MLLW. To accommodate electric dredging equipment, an electrical substation would be constructed land-side at Pier J. Approximately 7.4 million cubic yards of dredged sediment material generated by the Project would be placed in a nearshore placement site and/or a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-designated ocean-dredged material disposal site. If construction schedules align, dredged sediment material may be used to fill the Pier G South Slip at the Port.
