Long Beach upholds Gerald Desmond EIR
Nossaman Partner and Infrastructure co-chair, Patrick Harder, was quoted in the Infrastructure Journal article, "Long Beach upholds Gerald Desmond EIR." The article discusses a major milestone for the Port of Long Beach, one of the largest and busiest Ports in the world and a major inter-modal center for cargo movement throughout the Western United States and beyond.
On September 30, the Long Beach City Counsel approved the environmental impact report (EIR) for the $1B plan to replace the Gerald Desmond Bridge. As the first cable-stayed bridge ever built in California, the project is expected to be a landmark structure for the Port and surrounding communities.
Mr. Harder said, "There will be a lot of interest in this project among the major global construction and engineering firms. It's a signature project at one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking port facilities in the world."
