Meeting on the Everport Terminal Improvements

The Port of Los Angeles and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report (EIS/EIR) for the Everport Container Terminal Improvements Project.

The port will hold a public meeting regarding the proposed project on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, 6 p.m., at the Port of Los Angeles Administration Building.

The proposed project is aimed to improve and expand the existing Everport Container Terminal, currently in operation at Berths 226-236 on Terminal Island within the LA Port.

The project elements include:

  • Dredging (including installation of king piles and approximately 1.400 linear feet of sheet piling to stabilize the wharf) at Berths 226-229 to a design depth of -53 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) plus two feet of overdepth tolerance (for a total depth of -55 feet MLLW). The existing design depth is -45 feet MLLW;
  • Dredging (including installation of approximately 1.400 linear feet of sheet piling to stabilize the wharf) at Berths 230-232 to a design depth of -47 feet MLLW plus two feet of overdepth tolerance (for a total depth of -49 feet MLLW) to accommodate larger ships. The existing design depth is -45 feet MLLW;
  • Disposal of approximately 38,000 cubic yards of dredged materials (30,000 cubic yards from Berths 226-229 and 8.000 cubic yards from Berths 230-232) at an ocean disposal site.

According to the Corps, the public comment/review period runs from April 20, 2017 through June 5, 2017.
