Abstract: The Port of Seattle is currently renovating its Terminal 5 facility on the west bank of the Duwamish River on the west side of Harbor Island in Seattle. This paper describes the methods adopted to improve the submerged slope stability as well as upgrade the old dock structure to accommodate the new, significantly heavier crane wheel loads. All new and renovated features of the wharf were designed in accordance with current seismic design practice. The project is now in the construction phase with occupation by the new tenant expected to begin in March, 1986.
