The Anchorage 47 Dock Replacement Project includes the removal of the existing aged and outdated dock system and replacement with a new dock system consisting of 11 newly reconfigured docks with 253 new slips that will meet the County’s current standards for marina construction. The new reconfigured dock system will encompass the same footprint area as the existing dock system, but will result in a net reduction of 77 slips in order to comply with the latest accessibility standards contained in the Americans with Disabilities Act for public marina facilities and the California Department of Boating and Waterways Design guidelines. In addition, the project includes repair and upgrade of the landside utilities (water, fire protection, power, and sewer) for the new reconfigured dock system.
Due to project requirements, heavy coordination is required with various State, Federal, and County agencies including Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), Caltrans, California State Lands Commission (CSLC), Coastal Commission, Building & Safety Public Works, and the Fire Department. Demolition and construction occurred while the public park was open for visitors and scheduling accommodated end user operations and special events. This required phasing construction to maintain lessees’ accessibility and continuous revenue generation for the end-user. Environmental protection controls were utilized such as skirt boundaries to confine debris, water quality monitoring and testing, and eelgrass and bird nest monitoring and surveying.
