Yusen Container Terminal Draft EIS/EIR Released

Monday, May 05, 2014

The Port of Los Angeles and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report (EIS/EIR) for the Yusen Terminals Inc. (YTI) Container Terminal Improvements Project, located at Berths 212-224 at the Port of Los Angeles, on the north side of Terminal Island along the Cerritos Channel, near the East Basin.

The proposed project entails improving Berths 214-216 wharves, increasing berth depth from -45 to -53 feet, and improving Berths 217-220 wharves to make way for 100-foot gauge gantry cranes, as well as deepening to a -47 feet berth depth. The project will also construct additional on-dock rail yard capacity for YTI.

The proposed project follows in the footsteps of the Port of Los Angeles’ $370 million Main Channel Deepening Project, done in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As a result of these improvements, the Port’s main channel and turning basins now provide -53 depths.

YTI is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha.  YTI operates marine cargo terminals in Los Angeles and Oakland, providing stevedore and terminal service to container shipping lines. YTI has a long-term lease with the Port for operation of the terminal through 2016, and plans to exercise its option to extend its lease through 2026.

The Draft EIS/EIR includes a discussion of the proposed project’s environmental impacts and identifies mitigation measures to reduce these impacts as required under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The public comment and review period is from May 2, to June 16, 2014. During this time, the Port will accept written comments and will host a public meeting on Tuesday, May 20, 6 p.m., at Port of Los Angeles Administration Building, located at 425 S. Palos Verdes Street in San Pedro, to present its findings and provide opportunity for public comment.
