The Berth 9 and 10 structural bulkhead and marine infrastructure within Slip 1 will be relocated 175 feet south of its present location in order to widen the Slip from its existing 300 feet to a total of 475 feet. The project team will coordinate with the petroleum industry to relocate their facilities prior to construction. In addition to the new bulkhead, the construction project will need to dispose of known contaminated soils in the project area.
