Abstract:

The objectives of this Stage 2 study are 1 To evaluate a full range of alternatives for commercial navigation modifications at Lorain Harbor considering benefits, costs, social and environmental implications, and constraints that might be imposed on improvements in the interest of recreational navigation and sedimentation. 2 To recommend those commercial navigation alternatives which warrant additional study during the detailed study phase Stage 3. The conclusion of this report is that the most feasible alternatives for fulfilling the commercial navigation planning objective is delivery of iron ore to a trans-shipment facility located either on the lakefront at the Old Coal Dock, or preferably on the west bank of the Black River just south of the Erie Avenue Bridge. Delivery of pellets to the trans- shipment facility would be by either delivery to an off-load hopper at the lakefront and conveyor system for delivery to the trans-shipment facility. Upriver pellet movement would be accomplished by either a conveyor located on the west bank of the Black River or a special purpose vessel operating on the river with its existing configuration.
