Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes to modify Department of the Army (DA) Permit SWG-2023-00226 (formerly 8225-02) by adding structural components to improve operational efficiencies of the existing terminal dock infrastructure.  The project components include construction of a proposed 19.5-foot by 18.5-foot by 7.5-foot ship-gangway platform with one 54-inch-diameter and two 30-inch-diameter pile supports, as well as installation of four proposed catwalks as follows:

  • One catwalk extension with six legs connecting to two existing breasting dolphins, the existing dock, and an existing fire monitor on the southwest side of the project, supported by a total of fifteen 12-inch-diameter pipe piles,
  • One catwalk to an existing breasting dolphin positioned from northeast to southeast on the northeast side of the project, which requires a 36-inch-diameter pile,
  • One catwalk to the proposed gangway positioned northwest to northeast on the northeast side of the project, and
  • One catwalk positioned from southwest to northeast on the northeast side of the project.

The applicant stated that the purpose of the project is to add to the required improvements to the existing infrastructure for the continued use of the applicant’s existing facility.  The modifications would help to aid the applicant in operational efficiencies and their strategic corporate initiatives.
