  • Public Notice of USACE Feasibility Study: Honolulu Harbor Modification Feasibility Study

    Interested parties are hereby notified that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps, USACE) and the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) are in the early stages of the Honolulu Harbor Modification Feasibility Study pursuant to Section 216 of the Flood Control Act of 1970 (Public Law 91-611). The study began with the signing of the Feasibility Cost Share Agreement on 23 September 2022 by both parties. The purpose of the study is to investigate the feasibility of modifications to the harbor, including but not limited to deepening and/or widening the harbor basins and channels to improve navigational efficiencies in the harbor. As part of the feasibility study, USACE is preparing an integrated feasibility report and appropriate documentation to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S.C. § 4321) and other applicable environmental laws and regulations. With this notice, the Corps seeks to notify the public of the availability of project information and opportunity to provide scoping comments as the Corps develops the scope and schedule for environmental analysis and compliance for the harbor modification study. The study will conclude with a recommended plan for implementation considering economic feasibility, engineering constructability, and environmental acceptability. This initial scoping solicitation for comments is being conducted as a matter of due diligence and to inform the preparation of a draft NEPA document associated with the feasibility study. Concurrent to involving the public, the Corps will pursue interagency coordination on the proposed action.
