Two public meetings on the Draft Integrated Feasibility Report (Integrated Feasibility Study/Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report) for the Port of Long Beach Deep Draft Navigation Study will be held on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, at the Port of Long Beach Administration Building in Long Beach, CA.

The Draft IFR EIS/EIR has also a review period of 45 days, starting on October 25 and ending December 9, 2019.

“Written comments on the IFR EIS/EIR can be submitted anytime during the 45-day public review and comment period,” said USACE.

The purpose of the proposed project is to identify, evaluate, and improve existing navigation channels within the Port of Long Beach to improve conditions for current and future container and liquid bulk vessel operations and safety, in the event of vessel malfunction or weather-related events.

The scheme, located at Port of Long Beach Federal channels and berths serving Pier J and Pier T/West Basin, deepens existing Federal channels and constructs a new Federal channel and turning basin by dredging and disposing up to approximately 7.4 million cubic yards of sediment.

According to USACE, construction would begin in 2024 and is anticipated to take approximately 39 months to complete.
