Project description: This project consisted of the complete demolition of the old deteriorated timber dock and the construction of a modern breakbulk concrete terminal dock. The new dock will have a flat-plate design to resist earthquake damage and a bulkhead sheet pile wall.

The project also involves the development of 32 acres of property upland from the dock for cargo lay-down. The development includes storm drains, sanitary improvements, electrical redistribution, asphalt pavement and a water quality area. Advanced American Diving Services has demolished the 1,400 feet of the old, rotten dock and is working on the installation of 600 feet of new terminal dock.

The riprap, piping and sheet pile wall for the entire 1,400 feet of new dock is also being completed under this contract. The contractor has currently driven 210 of 350 pilings. Pilings are 24 inches in diameter and average 110 feet long. The associated earthwork (backup area) and piping for the terminal is close to 80 percent complete.
