The former Henderson Ranch site has been identified as the preferred location in the Coos Bay harbor for an intermodal container terminal due to available acreage and proximity to rail and highway. The property is approximately 293 acres/118.5 hectares and is bounded by lower Coos Bay, TransPacific Parkway, and other components of the future OGMT complex. An industrial rail spur – North Spit Rail Spur – branches off the Coos Bay rail line and parallels TransPacific Parkway along the northern and western boundaries of the site. U.S. Highway 101 is about three miles east via TransPacific Parkway. The Henderson property will be used for deposition of appropriate material dredged from the Coos Bay navigation channel; helping prepare the site for terminal development. Regulatory requirements for the placement of dredged material are addressed in the Draft Feasibility Study/Environmental Impact Statement and permitting process for the Coos Bay Channel Modification. When permitting and channel modifications are complete, the Henderson site will be ready for terminal construction in mid to late 2019.
