Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Jacksonville District, is proposing to widen and deepen the current Federal navigation channel at Lake Worth Inlet / Palm Beach Harbor. The proposed plan includes the following: addition of a new channel flare on the south side of the Entrance Channel, a widening of the Entrance Channel by either 40’ or 60’ to the north, widening of the Inner Harbor Cuts 1 and 2 to provide for a minimum channel width of 450’, a 150’ expansion of the Southern (Main) Turning Basin to the south, and an expansion of the Southern (Main) Turning Basin on the north side to remove a notch currently encroaching into the basin. The channel would be deepened to a project depth of 39 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) for the Inner Harbor and 41 feet MLLW for the Entrance Channel plus applicable allowances and overdepths discussed in the Engineering Appendix included in the integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement (FR/EIS). In addition to the project improvements described above that are necessary to facilitate the safe and efficient navigation of the design vessel, there are other features needed to support the project. These features include North Jetty stabilization, reconfiguration of the advanced maintenance zones, reconfiguration of the settling basin, seagrass mitigation construction, and hardbottom mitigation construction as detailed in the integrated FR/EIS.
