Port of Long Beach
The Berth 236 Secondary Gate Expansion Project expanded access to the International Transportation Service (ITS) terminal on Pier G. Prior to construction, trucks entering the gate would line up well past the exit ramp, creating traffic congestion and accidents which would then impede Port activity. Our team reconstructed most all of the terminal, expanding and modernizing gate access, constructing new container holding facilities, creating a new truck queuing area, and providing eight new rail lines to the on-dock rail spur. At the Gate we installed the newest technologies to enable the electronic processing and tracking of containers and vehicles. And before we could add all the finishing touches our underground crews installed new storm drain, water, and fire line systems.
Our project team worked hand-in-hand with the Port staff and ITS to minimize disruptions to the active shipping terminal. To ensure our work crews could stay productive while keeping the business of commerce flowing smoothly required constant attention to look ahead and master schedules as well as unique staging flexibility. We were able to process the complex work without delays, disputed work or claims — a testament to our capabilities and commitment.
