Pier 400 Corridor Storage Tracks Expansion Project

The existing Pier 400 rail storage yard is in need of expansion in order to accommodate future rail volumes on Terminal Island. The project scope includes a concrete rail bridge with lighting, six new railroad storage tracks, an asphalt access roadway, new crossovers and switches, as well as modifications to the existing compressed air system of the Pier 400 Rail Storage Yard and Bridge. Work also includes the relocation of a portion of the Pier 400 lead track onto Port property, realignment of the track connection to the existing rail storage yard, modifications to Reeves Avenue, and relocation of the existing at-grade crossing at Nimitz Avenue to Reeves Avenue. The project is currently budgeted at $49.8 million and was awarded approximately $21.6 million of California Trade Corridor Enhancement Program (TCEP) federal funding by the State of California. Construction is expected to start in early 2021.

Berths 302-305 – On-Dock Rail Expansion Project

This project will increase on-dock intermodal railyard capacity by a projected 520,000 TEUs. This enables more cargo to be loaded onto trains via the on-dock railyard within the terminal instead of off-dock railyards. Shifting the loading of these containers to ondock rail enables the BNSF railway and Union Pacific Railroad to transport import and export containers to/from the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the rest of the nation in a safer, more efficient, rapid, and cost-effective manner, via the Alameda Corridor. The project cost is approximately $40.5 million and the Port is receiving a grant totaling $18.2 million dollars from the Fiscal Year 2019 United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIPD). Design completion is scheduled for October 2021.

Avalon Promenade and Gateway Project

This project involves the construction of a pedestrian bridge along Avalon Boulevard that will provide pedestrian access to the future Wilmington Waterfront Promenade. In February 2017, the Los Angeles Harbor Commission approved a three-year, $1.5 million contract with engineering firm T.Y. Lin International to design the 1,300-foot-long walkway. The final design concepts include an arch bridge, entry plaza with an entry gateway feature, landscaping, hardscaping, parking, and other improvements. The total project cost is $23.8 million with Measure M grant funding of $8.1 million from Metro. Construction is expected to start in late 2021.

Berths 226-236, Everport Container Terminal Improvements

Starting in September 2019, the $65.2 million Everport Container Terminal Improvement Project involves the deepening of its berths and terminal facility improvements, which will allow the terminal operator to accommodate the larger next generation vessels. The project will increase berth depth from -45 to -53 feet at Berths 226-229, and increase berth depth to -47 feet at Berths 230-232. The project also involves the construction of an additional 1.5 acres of backland and electrical improvements for five new Alternative Maritime Power (AMP®) connections, as well as electrical infrastructure for three additional container cranes. Total project cost is $65.2 million, though $5.4 million is expected to be reimbursed from a Proposition 1B Trade Corridors Improvement Fund (TCIF) grant. Estimated completion is in late 2021.

Berths 167-169 – MOTEMS – Shell Oil

Port is finalizing design of a new marine oil platform at the Shell Oil Terminal. The primary goal of the proposed $44.8 million project is to comply with the Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards (MOTEMS) to protect public health and safety, as well as the environment. Work includes demolition of the existing timber wharves and construction and operation of a new MOTEMS-compliant wharf at Berth 167, with minor infrastructure improvements to connect the new loading platform to the existing landside pipelines and utilities. The proposed project would also include a new 30-year lease. Construction is expected to begin in December 2020.

San Pedro Public Market

Plans for the San Pedro Public Market include 16 acres of restaurants, shopping, fresh markets, office space, and a waterfront promenade with ample outdoor space and an open-air amphitheater for live entertainment. The project developer—San Pedro Public Market LLC (The Ratkovich Company and Jerico Development)—is expected to invest approximately $100.0 million in this redevelopment, which is expected to open in 2021.
