Document Description
The proposed Project would improve the safety of commercial fishing handling operations, improve dock accessibility by expanding Johnson Pier to allow for truck turn around, and increase the life and capacity of commercial docks. Johnson Pier was originally constructed to accommodate single-axle delivery trucks, however over time, trucks/semitrailers have been used for delivery from the facility. The lack of area on the Johnson pier head and L shaped geometry, restricts turning movements for truck/semitrailers, requiring trucks to either back-in or back-out the entire length of the pier. This creates safety issues and causes substantial delays in operations. The proposed project would expand Johnson Pier to elevate these safety issues and operational restraints. The proposed expansion would add approximately 16,000 sf to Johnson pier for fish handling, forklift maneuvering, and truck turnaround. In addition, the proposed project would replace existing floating docks that have exceeded their useful like and can no longer be maintained. This would include the replacement of Docks D, E, F, G, H and the fuel dock. Replacement docks would increase the capacity of the existing commercial docks and the replacement of Dock E will include the addition of a 2,500 sf work dock (Dock EW).
