by Cheryl Phanstiel Ulrich, Corps of Engineers, Mobile, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Engineering Practice


Panama City Harbor is on St. Andrew Bay, an arm of the Gulf of Mexico, about 105 miles east of Pensacola and 230 miles northwest of Tampa. At the request of the non-Federal sponsor, the Panama City Port Authority, the Corps of Engineers has re-initiated preconstruction planning and design. This paper will document investigations conducted to determine the National Economic Development plan for a deep draft navigation project at Panama City Harbor, Florida. This effort involves identifying, designing and evaluating alternative plans for economic justification and environmental compliance. Investigations include conduction of a hydrosurvey of the project site, shoaling analysis, quantity computation using the CADD Intergraph system, economic benefit analysis, disposal site investigation, cost estimation, and plan evaluation.
