The Port of Alaska saw the first ship to dock at the new Petroleum and Cement Terminal on Tuesday, as well as container ships from Tote and Matson, and a Crowley fuel barge and its tug boat.

The new pile-supported dock replaced the former Petroleum Oil Lubricates Terminal 1 that opened in 1965, which was severely corroded and suffered structural damage during the magnitude 7.1 earthquake that occurred Nov. 30, 2018. The PCT pilings and concrete deck are designed to last for 75 years, and are part of the first phase of the Port of Alaska Modernization Program.
