Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners approve $127-million construction contracts for two major projects.

Both projects are part of a $365 million expansion of the marine container terminal operated by longtime tenant TraPac, Inc. due to be completed in 2016.

With work due to begin in January, the projects are key elements of the Port of Los Angeles’ overall capital improvement program. The Port is investing more than $1.2 billion over five years to remain competitive in the global economy.

The first contract, a $71.5 million project for new buildings and state-of-the-art truck entrance and exit gates at TraPac’s rear Berths 136-139, was awarded to Costa Mesa-based S. J. Amoroso Construction Co., Inc. The work includes a new administration building designed to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standard, a new yard operations building, truck scales and a pedestrian bridge.

The second contract is a $55.7 million grade separation project awarded to Sacramento area-based MCM Construction, Inc. The South Wilmington Grade Separation involves building an elevated 4,100-foot roadway that links Harry Bridges Boulevard, Pier A Street and Fries Avenue to TraPac’s new entrance and separates truck from rail operations for safer and more efficient flow of traffic.

“Redevelopment of the TraPac terminal reflects the Port’s larger commitment to retaining its global position as America’s premier seaport,” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Geraldine Knatz, Ph.D.
