The Evergreen terminal at the Port of Los Angeles occupies the former sites of several smaller facilities. The terminal was repaved in 1998. Much of the original paving was of differing construction, and had been in service for many years. Ongoing settlement had resulted in poor drainage conditions with a number of different drainage systems. Prior to repaving the terminal the Port undertook an investigation into the residual condition of the pavement and the design of an overlay and reprofiling scheme. Nigel Nixon and Partners, Inc. were appointed by the Port, through Psomas and Associates, to undertake visual and non-destructive surveys of the terminal, and to design the various overlays required by the new elevations and existing pavement conditions.
