Dredging Substantially Completed
Dredging at the Port is substantially complete at wharves 1,2,3 and 4.

Dredging is necessary to keep the Port open to deep water vessels and ships by removing sediment and debris from the bottom of the harbor. This $1.6M investment supports Port operations, the working waterfront, economic vitality to the region and personal water recreational use in and around the Redwood Creek Channel.
First Step Taken to Create a Port Strategic Vision
Last week, the Port Commission approved a consulting agreement to lead a strategic vision process for the Port. This process will help guide the Port Commission and the Leadership Team on developing long-term priorities for Port operations and will include a stakeholder engagement process.

The firm will help evaluate the Port's environmental stewardship goals, diversify the Port's real estate portfolio, and more. Stay tuned for more on this initiative and stakeholder engagement details, in the new year.
Redwood City Public Ferry Terminal Project Update
The feasibility of a new alternative and sustainable transportation effort is underway. The Port, the City of Redwood City and the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA), are exploring the feasibility of a public ferry service in the South Bay, connecting key large employers with residents thereby eliminating vehicle miles traveled on local roadways.

The Port, City and WETA are currently evaluating consultant proposals to lead the feasibility and cost-benefit study. The partners anticipate selecting and approving a consulting agreement in early December.
