The US$383.7m in future spending on construction projects will fuel a surge of construction activity that will create more than 6,000 jobs in the region.

Los Angeles to award $383m in construction contracts by year end

At present, 18 multi-year construction projects are underway at the port, totalling approximately US$148m and supporting an estimated 2,516 total one-year full-time regional jobs, including 1,260 direct construction jobs.

“The rise in construction activity underscores our mission to continue upgrading Port infrastructure and cargo terminals in the most environmentally sustainable fashion,” Geraldine Knatz, Port Executive Director. “After a seven-year hiatus in our capital development programme, this construction activity is a sign that we are back in business in a big way.”

The largest construction contracts approved this calendar year include a US97.9m wharf improvement contract as part of the TraPac Container Terminal expansion and a $42.7m contract for marine wharf maintenance and improvements at various berths.
