Abstract:

In order to meet growing future demands, a 10- to 15-yr harbor expansion program for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Calif., has been designed to provide an increased amount of terminal space and berthing areas. This increased space will be developed by dredging and landfill construction in the Outer Harbor, with the landfill proposed to lie parallel with the San Pedro Bay middle breakwater for approximately 18,500 ft 14,000 ft being in the long Beach jurisdiction, leaving a 1,000-ft-wide channel between the breakwater and the landfill.
