The 94-acre former Kapālama Military Reservation at Honolulu Harbor is undergoing redevelopment by the Hawai‘i State Department of Transportation to become a container terminal serving the islands. The face of the pier is being moved 51 feet landward to accommodate larger container ships with adjacent piers being extended approximately 1,860 feet in length with gantry crane rails, upgraded utilities, a weigh station, and dredging to a draft depth of 40 feet. Belt Collins completed the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the budgeted $266 million redevelopment and is currently providing permit processing support for implementation of the improvements.
The applications being processed include those under the Department of the Army Section 404 Clean Water Act, Section 10 Rivers and Harbors Act, State Department of Health Section 401 Water Quality Certification, and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. Assistance in the Section 7 Endangered Species Act and Section 106 National Historic Preservation Act consultations and coordinating with resource agencies on mitigation for potential coral impacts and essential fish habitat within Honolulu Harbor are also being provided.
