The Port of Seattle is extending the Terminal 46 Cruise Terminal Development scoping period by 14 days to promote interagency involvement and public participation.

The comment period will now end at 4 p.m. on Nov. 27.

First step in environmental review process

Scoping is the first step in the environmental review process that will evaluate potential impacts to transportation, air quality/greenhouse gas analysis, noise, biological resources, earth, water resources, aesthetics/light and glare, historic/cultural resources and environmental justice.

The port is inviting stakeholders including agencies, tribes, community members and the general public to comment and suggest potential environmental elements and alternatives for evaluation.

Comments can be submitted via the project website.

$200m project with initial 22-year term

The estimated $200m project would see a $100m investment from the port and the balance from a partner.

Earlier, three shortlisted groups received a request for proposals. They are Cruise Industry Leaders Group (Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., MSC Cruises, Carnival Corp. and SSA Marine, a subsidiary of Carrix), Global Ports Holding and Civil & Building North America, and Ports America with Jacobs Engineering Group.
