Pier Demolition and Replacement in San Diego Bay
The Port of San Diego has completed its final environmental impact report on and will host a public forum regarding a proposed pier replacement project at BAE Systems’ ship repair facility south of the Coronado Bridge along the San Diego Bay waterfront.
The project involves the demolition of Piers 4 and 5 as well as five mooring dolphins (structures in the water designed for affixing vessels to stabilize them) which the Port describes as “deteriorated facilities.” In their place, construction is proposed for a new pier, bulkhead, and single mooring dolphin, along with dredging of the bay.
The Port will hold a public meeting at 1p.m. on August 14 to present the potential environmental impacts of the project, including how it might affect water quality, biological diversity, and other areas.
A complete copy of the report is available here.
