Pier 3 at Military Ocean Terminal Concord
A gantry crane's boom rests in the down position on Pier 3 at Military Ocean Terminal Concord March 3, 2013 in Concord, Calif. Pier 2 has been inoperable for the past five years and is a key component for MOTCO, which represents nearly 25 percent of the nation's total ammunition shipping capability. The Department of the Army and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District have been developing three viable scenarios for Pier 2 and/or Pier 3 modernizations - all of which would allow MOTCO to meet its mission safely and efficiently. 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.
