The Bayport Container Terminal is a marine terminal complex for handling containerized cargo operations. RPS prepared the design for the implementation of Container Yard 7 from the Bayport Master Plan, approximately 45 acres of grounded container, and wheeled reefer container storage. A preliminary engineering phase was included to collect and analyze existing conditions and adjust the proposed utilities, drainage, and electrical and telecommunications systems from the Master Plan. A cost analysis was performed to help determine the amount of drainage ditch “K” to convert to box culverts. Our recommendation added 840 container spaces and a small pavement reduction in the south yard helped pay for the box culverts.
Following the preliminary engineering phase, it was decided to construct the north and south halves of the yard in a single construction package. A separate security package was developed to construct the security features immediately following the infrastructure package. Milestone construction with liquidated damages was used to expedite completion and opening of the north half of the yard, prior to completion of the contract. The design includes paving, grading, stormwater drainage, civil utilities, striping, high mast poles, electrical and communications infrastructure, and security fencing.

The port was rapidly expanding operations and needed additional container yard space quickly.
RPS completed the project on an expedited schedule and prepared the construction phasing plan to complete one section of the project first to be used while the remainder of the project was constructed.
