                Project Background
•  Litigation Settlement Agreement (10/5/2020):
– Port committed to address alleged Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) code violations
within the Fishermen’s Terminal parking areas by 10/5/2022.
•  Phase 1 FT ADA Compliance (C801198/U00658)
– Construction completed by Port Construction Services (PCS): 1/8/2023
– Third-party post-construction survey reported remaining areas out of compliance with
2010 ADA design standards (e.g., ramps were too short and steep).
•  Phase 2 FT ADA Compliance (C801198/U00721):
– Scope: Correct ramps, sidewalks and parking areas that are out of compliance
(demolition, regrading, paving/pavement overlay, pavement marking, landscaping)
– Construction will be performed by an external general contractor procured via major
public works construction contract.

                    Risk Mitigation
• Construction resource will be procured via Major Public Works
Construction contract to establish contractual accountability
and not-to-exceed cost limit for full delivery of design.
• Engagement of the new Port Facilities Access Program
Manager specializing in ADA requirements for review and
guidance through duration of project.


              Tenant Impact Mitigation
• Tenant impact will be minimized through the following
– External relations outreach and coordination.
– Additional tenant-specific communication by on-site Real Estate and
Maritime Operations staff.
– Construction contract terms to include access and phasing
– Timing of work to commence October 2024 after busy season.
– Internal coordination to limit conflict with other projects occurring at
Fishermen’s Terminal.

                 Funding Request
•  Additional Funding Request: $1,100,000
•  Justification:
1. Tenant Impact: Minimize tenant impact through construction phasing and
2. Compliance: Phase 1 original construction did not meet ADA compliance
requirements per project design. Phase 2 re-work will be required to meet full ADA
compliance via external construction contract.
3. Litigation: The conditions of the Litigation Settlement Agreement have not been
met, as Phase 1 construction did not meet ADA compliance requirements per
project design.
4. Funding: Current project funding has been exhausted as of Phase 1 original project
completion. Additional funding required to proceed with Phase 2 re-work scope.
