New Director Takes Helm of POLB’s Infrastructure Projects

The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners has appointed John Y. Chun, P.E., as the new Director of Engineering Design, heading up roads, utilities and other infrastructure projects for the Port of Long Beach.

Chun, who started with the Port in 1996 as a civil engineering assistant, has served as a Deputy Chief Harbor Engineer since 2008, and has been involved in a number of Port projects including the Middle Harbor Redevelopment, Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement, Stormwater Master Plan, Pavement Management System, Traffic Sign Inventory Program and more.

The Engineering Design Division is critical to the development and maintenance of Port channels, roads, wharfs, utilities and other facilities. The division produces technical reports, studies, plans and specifications for Port construction projects.

As the division director, Chun will be responsible for managing multiple in-house design projects and consulting contracts. Chun succeeds Neil D. Morrison, P.E., who was recently promoted to Assistant Managing Director, Engineering Design and Maintenance.

Chun earned his bachelor’s in Civil Engineering from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and his master’s in Civil Engineering from California State University, Long Beach. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Public Works Association.
