Bellingham Marine recently completed the rebuilding of California's Cabrillo Way Marina near Los Angeles.

The new marina features a 39-acre deep-water basin with 41 acres of planned landside amenities. Extensive excavation and dredge work allowed engineers to more than double the size of the original basin and expand the marina's berths from 520 to 700.

“The team's ability to think outside the box and approach the rebuild from a unique angle afforded the Port of L.A. the ability to increase its number of berths,” Jill Shimamoto, project construction manager for the port, said in a statement.

The existing marina was becoming a safety hazard. Exposed electrical wiring, overhead utility lines and rotting timbers were among the most obvious concerns. Outdated slips, constructed for narrow-beam boats, had left a number of berths vacant.

Today the old wooden docks have been replaced with concrete floating docks, complete with the latest amenities and accessories.

Slips completed in the first phase of construction are open and have been filled with pre-existing slip holders. The second and final phase of marina construction also has been completed.

The port anticipates that those slips will be opened to the public during the first quarter next year.
