Port of Seattle One Step Closer to Being Big Ship Ready

The US Port of Seattle has taken another step toward the modernization of the cargo-handling facility at Terminal 5 as the port completed the environmental analysis and prepared the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) on the project.

Being undertaken in an effort to serve larger cargo vessels, the proposed upgrades to Terminal 5 will include wharf rehabilitation, berth deepening, electrical service and improvements to the upland portions of the property.

“Based on public comment we are including a number of improvements, such as shore power for vessels, installing gates for noise and safety mitigation for rail, and significant traffic improvement measures,” John Creighton, Port of Seattle Commission president and co-chair of The Northwest Seaport Alliance, said.

Mitigation measures for the project include construction of plug-in capability for shore power at two berths, tracking of air quality performance, establishment of a safety corridor between the Terminal 5 gate and the Duwamish river in order to minimize the need to use locomotive horns, and other.
