Pier 400 Wharf, Phases 1 and 2, San Pedro, CA

Pier 400 at the Port of Los Angeles is one of the largest manmade seaports in the world. Phase I was the first container handling structure built on the island of Pier 400. Phase II was built as an extension to Phase I and was the second container handling structure built on the island. Phase I included a new 4,000-foot-long by 125-foot-wide concrete wharf that had two pile-supported container crane rail beam installations each, for the full length of the wharf (8,000 feet).

The main work involved the driving of over 2,200 24-inch octagonal, prestressed concrete piles up to 124 feet long. The wharf deck was a cast-in-place reinforced concrete flat slab nominally two feet thick and three to five feet thick in the areas of the crane rail beams and fenders. There were 39 major concrete pours of over 1,000 cubic yards each, as well as numerous smaller pours. Also, the work included 8,000 linear feet of installation of a 171-pound crane rail complete with a Gantrex-style attachment system with cast-in- place anchors, clips, base plates, and pads.
