This fill area is proposed to be 3,696 square feet (0.0848 acre). The barge ramp will be filled in with 1200 cubic yards of clean shot rock and material that has been removed from the Berth II pinnacle removal project.

At the north part of the property, within Tract A, a 10-foot x 90-foot float (float 4) is proposed to be supported by the existing piles from the removed hanger. Float 4 will run parallel to the existing seawall. The previously permitted float (float 3) is proposed to be modified to 16-foot x 100-foot. The modification of float 3 will include the placement of three new 16 inch HDG steel piles, along with the use of the existing five piles. Float 3 will be perpendicular to the seawall.
