The South Carolina Ports Authority

Atlas Surveying - Wednesday, November 28, 2018

The South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) is currently building the only permitted new container terminal on the U.S. East and Gulf Coasts. Since receiving the final permit approvals in 2007, the Ports Authority has already completed preliminary demolition, site preparation and containment wall construction on the new, 280-acre terminal which, at build out, will boost capacity in the port by a full 50%. About 3.7 million tons of crushed rock have been transported by ship to the construction site from a quarry in Newfoundland. The SCPA recently awarded a $53.8 million contract to a joint venture of Cape Romain Construction and McLean Contracting to build a 1,400-foot berth at the terminal. They will construct ship-to-shore gantry crane rail and support beams, a ship fender system, mooring bollards, water service stations, power cable vaults and conduits, an extension of exisitng stone revetments, and other ancillary works. A second 1,300 foot berth will be finished in 2026 and a third in 2032, capable of handling 2.1 million containers annually. While Leatherman's berth will be the same length as the Wando Welch Terminal, the new terminal can handle 18,000-TEU vessels because of a stronger fender (bumpers that absorb the kinetic energy of a vessel against a berth) and cranes capable of lifting 169 feet high and reaching wider, the port authority said. Read More

Ridgeland Claude Dean Airport Expansion

Atlas Surveying - Friday, July 27, 2018

Claude Dean was a Ridgeland native, a World War II veteran and chairman of the Jasper County Aeronautics Commission. He died last September at the age of 94 and the airport has been renamed in his honor. The expansion will include a new 4,200-foot runway and convert the current runway into an extended taxiway which will qualify the airport for general aviation, allowing for both commercial and non-commercial aircraft and activity. This classification better integrates the airport and air traffic into the FAA airport system, yet it will not prevent current private aircraft from using the new runway. Read More

Atlas Certifies Distances of New Running Tracks for Effingham & South Effingham High Schools

Victoria Carter - Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Sports Turf Company Inc., who operates out of Whitesburg, Ga, rebuilt both The South Effingham High School Mustangs and the Effingham County High School Rebels running tracks this year. The projects were funded with SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) monies voted on during the 2016 election. The Mustangs’ track circles the football field. The Rebels’ track is behind its football stadium. The old Effingham tracks were asphalt surfaces. The harder surfaces sometimes led to injuries. The new tracks are much more user friendly. With the new tracks it also allows South Effingham and Effingham County to host track events. “It’s exciting. It’s exciting for our kids, our community and our school,” said Mustangs athletic director Jeff Faith, who was a long-distance runner in college at the University of Kansas and later at  Morehead State. “I think it’s special to have a track to call ours,” he said. “This track isn’t just for us, but for the athletes and teams in years to come.” Read More

South Carolina Ports Authority- Drum Island

Victoria Carter - Thursday, May 10, 2018

The South Carolina Ports Authority is constructing the new Hugh K. Leatherman, Sr. Terminal on the Cooper River, in North Charleston, SC. The agency has worked diligently to avoid, minimize and mitigate impacts associated with the construction of this terminal through the permitting process. A major element of the mitigation process is the creation of over 22 acres of new intertidal wetland habitat on a former dredged material containment area (DMCA) located on the southern end of Drum Island in Charleston Harbor. This collaborative project included ecological planning, environmental research/permitting, soil & contaminant testing and coastal & marine engineering to plan and design a sustainable habitat that would withstand the weather and tidal conditions prevailing at the site. The project's engineering challenges stem from Drum Island's central location in Charleston Harbor. With an over 7 km fetch, the site is exposed to severe wind and wave action in addition to strong tidal currents. Engineering studies were performed to develop a combination of natural and traditional shore protection measures are being employed to protect this new state resource. The completed restoration site will be inclusive of low lying spartina marsh, high marsh, vegetated upland areas and meandering tidal creeks. Read More
