Manson Construction Co. won a $44.6 million contract from the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners to upgrade berths and backlands. The Port of Los Angeles will begin construction this summer on a two-year project to improve the marine container terminal operated by Yusen Terminals, LLC.

The project includes upgrading wharf and backland infrastructure within the terminal’s existing footprint to enhance Yusen’s ability to service the biggest ships in the trans-Pacific trade lanes.

The project includes deepening berths 214 to 216 from 45 to 53 feet and berths 217 to 220 from 45 to 47 feet.

The improvements will allow Yusen to simultaneously work three container ships carrying up to 13,000, 11,000 and 6,500 TEUs respectively and ensure cargo flows during peak periods when ships call at all three berths.
