               Project Background
•  East and West T91 berths
each have a primary
passenger gangway, but ONLY
East berth currently has a
secondary gangway
•  Existing secondary gangway is
at end of service life and has
limited operational range
(non-ADA compliant) and
•  Cruise vessel sizes and
passenger operational
requirements are increasing

             Project Objectives
•   Maximize secondary
passenger gangways’
operational capacity, range,
and mobility at both T91 berths
•   Increase cruise passenger
loading safety and efficiency
•   Provide fully capable backup
gangway for both Pier 91
primary gangways

               Project Scope
Replace existing aged single
secondary gangway with two new
secondary gangways at Pier 91
 Analyze and determine gangways
operational requirements
 Prepare and advertise a
gangways Request for Proposal
 Select vendor to manufacture,
deliver, and assemble new
secondary gangways at Pier 91
 Oversee vendor work and
commission installed gangways

Limitations of Translatable Documents

PDF files are created with text and images are placed at an exact position on a page of a fixed size.
Web pages are fluid in nature, and the exact positioning of PDF text creates presentation problems.
PDFs that are full page graphics, or scanned pages are generally unable to be made accessible, In these cases, viewing whatever plain text could be extracted is the only alternative.
