Aerial image of the Military Ocean Terminal Concord piers
An aerial image shows the Military Ocean Terminal Concord piers in Concord, Calif. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District and the Department of the Army are developing plans to safely modernize Pier 2 and/or Pier 3 on MOTCO. Pier 2 has been inoperable for the past five years and is a key component for the terminal, which represents nearly 25 percent of the nation's total ammunition shipping capability. The district is gathering public input to determine the best approach to modernize the piers, and hopes to outline that plan in the final environmental impact statement expected fall 2014 with possible construction tentatively scheduled in 2016.
