The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District (Corps) in coordination with the Port of Long Beach has completed a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/ Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the Middle Harbor Redevelopment project in the Port of Long Beach. The Corps is considering an application for Section 404 and Section 10 permits to conduct dredge and fill activities associated with the proposed consolidation of Piers D, E and F into a single 345-acre marine terminal with a 4,250-foot-long wharf at build-out. This would include redevelopment of 294 acres of existing land, creation of 10.7 acres of new open water and the placement of dredged material in 65.3 acres open water for a net gain of approximately 54.6 acres of new land in the consolidated terminal. The new terminal, which would be constructed over a 10-year time period, is intended to accommodate increasing cargo volumes being produced by the new generation of larger container vessels, and would include four deep-water berths, a container terminal yard, and an intermodal rail yard.Start Further Info
