Title: Atlantic Coast Port Access Route Study Areas
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2020-08-27
Abstract:

In 2019, the Coast Guard announced a new study of routes used by ships to access ports on the Atlantic Coast of the United States in the Federal Register (84 FR 9541; March 15, 2019). This new study supplements and builds upon the ACPARS by conducting a series of PARS to examine ports along the Atlantic Coast. Ports that were included in this study are economically significant, support military or critical national defense operations, or are related to international entry and departure transit areas that are integral to the safe, efficient, and unimpeded flow of commerce to and from major international shipping lanes.

Four of the five recent Atlantic Coast Port Access Route Study Area boundaries are shown in this data set. The PARS boundary for The Areas Offshore of Massachusetts and Rhode Island are published in: 85 FR 31792, Docket Number USCG-2019-0131.

Purpose:

To support ocean planning activities pursuant to the Executive Order Regarding the Ocean Policy to Advance the Economic, Security, and Environmental Interests of the United States, the Energy Policy Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rivers and Harbors Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act.
