Port of Los Angeles Considers Supplemental Container Storage

By Karen Robes Meeks

Port of Los Angeles property on Terminal Island formerly used by the Los Angeles Export Terminal and US Customs and Border Protection may become a peel-off yard to make cargo movement faster and more efficient.

The port recently released an Initial Study/Notice of Preparation looking at the environmental impacts of the proposed Harbor Performance Enhancement Center project that would allow for 24/7 access for storing containers and other uses at 300 South Ferry Street and 750 Eldridge Street.

The public can download the study at portoflosangeles.org and comment on it at a meeting that will take place at 3 p.m. on June 18 at the port’s Administration Building, 425 S. Palos Verdes Street in San Pedro.

Feedback can also be submitted via email to ceqacomments@portla.org or mail to Christopher Cannon, Director of Environmental Management, Los Angeles Harbor Department, 425 South Palos Verdes Street, San Pedro, CA 90731 until June 29.

Be sure to write “Harbor Performance Enhancement Center (HPEC) Project” in the email subject line and include your physical mailing address in the email.
