Full Public Notice          Proposed Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to construct a commercial goods dock and fleeting project intended for the loading of steel rolls, containers, and liquid products safely and efficiently.  The proposed project would shorten trips needed for hauling loads to only half-mile upstream of Cedar Bayou, saving transportation costs, delays, traffic, and barge collisions while providing a safer alternative for the shipping and receiving of commercial goods.  In order to complete the project, the applicant is proposing to install 1,338 feet (ft) of steel corrugated bulkheading to stabilize the banks of the commercial dock, expand the existing, privately owned Tri City Beach Road to a width of 200 ft to allow safe thoroughfare that would fill 1.69 acres (ac) of Waters of the United States (WOUS), including wetlands.  The proposed project would also raise the loading and unloading dock to an elevation of +9 ft above Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).  The applicant proposes to mechanically dredge approximately 32.94 ac and 684,000 cubic yards to a depth of -14 ft below MLLW to facilitate barge access within the area.  Dredged material will be placed within a previously approved upland disposal site located 0.2 mile from the project. It is anticipated that 0.08 ac of oyster reef, 33.55 ac of waterbodies, and 0.53 ac of estuarine wetlands will be directly impacted by the proposed project.
