By Karen Robes Meeks

Marlene Dupras was recently promoted as the new Long Beach Harbor Department's director of Project Controls. In her role, Dupras will collaborate with all divisions within the Harbor Department’s Engineering Services Bureau to “manage and oversee the scope, schedule and budget for the port’s capital improvement projects,” according to the Port of Long Beach.

A licensed civil engineer who earned her bachelor’s degree from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, Dupras came to the port in 2001 as a civil engineer and managed a variety of construction projects including the early stages of the Middle Harbor Terminal Redevelopment project. In 2012, she became the deputy chief harbor engineer in the Program Management Division.
