Abstract: Because of environmental considerations, construction of the wharf for the new Paulsboro Marine Terminal, in Paulsboro, New Jersey, could not cause the loss of in-water or intertidal habitat at the site. To address these limitations, the design featured a pile-supported wharf that includes trestles to facilitate vehicle and rail access.
