Abstract:

This technical appendix documents work performed in the preparation of preliminary engineering designs, cost estimates and other related work for modifications to the Federal commercial navigation project at Lorain Harbor, Ohio. The documented work is part of a Preliminary Feasibility Report for commercial navigation improvements to Lorain Harbor being prepared by the Buffalo District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The purpose of this report therefore is to clearly document the engineering analysis, quantity estimates and cost estimates developed for proposed alternative navigation improvements. Prime emphasis has been on alternative engineering solutions that would enable passage and safe navigation of new and larger vessels operating on the Great Lakes. It has been determined that the solutions should meet the navigation needs of vessels in the Class 10 1,000 feet x 105 feet x 28 feet and larger categories 1,200 feet x 130 feet x 28 feet that are now, or are projected to operate on the Great Lakes. In addition, this report documents the study and analysis of the physical requirements and the impacts of a small boat harbor in the Inner Harbor area. Author
