Port of SD to Hold Job Fair for Marine Terminal

Mar 28, 2019

Contact: Marguerite Elicone, 

The Port of San Diego is holding a job fair for opportunities associated with the ongoing Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal Redevelopment Project, other local projects, and the Port itself.

The event is scheduled for Thursday, March 14, 2019 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in room 101 at the San Diego Continuing Education Center, Cesar E. Chavez Campus, 1901 Main Street, San Diego, CA 92113. 

Dick Miller, Inc. of San Marcos has been awarded an $8 million contract to continue work under Phase I of the redevelopment project. Also referred to as the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal Modernization, this major public works project will make the terminal more modern, clean and efficient. The Port is targeting this outreach to the neighborhoods around the terminal to ensure local workers know about the job opportunities that are available on this overall $24 million modernization, funded in part by a $10 million TIGER grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Port staff, Dick Miller, Inc., and project subcontractors will have information and will be available for questions about the redevelopment and other local job opportunities at the Port and on other Port projects. 

This portion of the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal Redevelopment Project entails demolition of a warehouse on the terminal. Work will include demolition of structures, underground utilities, electrical and communications systems, site lighting, asphalt pavement, and rail improvements.

Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal Redevelopment details:

As part of Port of San Diego Maritime, the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal Redevelopment Project supports the Port’s specialty cargo advantage by providing laydown space and flexibility for each cargo type. The plan envisions three distinct cargo nodes within the existing footprint of the terminal and is focused on current core specialties of:

-Project, roll-on/roll-off, and break-bulk cargo such as military equipment, wind energy parts, shipbuilding steel, and vehicles;

-Refrigerated containers for fresh produce such as bananas or other produce; and

-Dry bulk cargo such as soda ash, aggregate and cement, used primarily in construction

The scope of work to be completed by Dick Miller, Inc. includes:

-Demolition of an obsolete and underutilized transit shed;

-Disposal and salvage of the transit shed building components and equipment;

-Excavation, grading and compaction of the areas under the demolished buildings to support a finished pavement; and

-Site utility improvements.

The Port’s maritime sector employs thousands of residents and generates billions of dollars per year for the regional economy. The Port requires that all consultants, vendors, contractors and lessees comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and/or regulations relating to equal employment opportunity and nondiscrimination.
