The Pacific Coast Port Access Route Study (PAC-PARS) is the first comprehensive evaluation of maritime traffic patterns along the Pacific Coast. The US Coast Guard studied navigational conditions for vessels accessing ports and making coastal transits in light of evolving uses of coastal waters: offshore renewable energy, aquafarms, and space launch activities among others. The PAC-PARS is available now and it provides recommendations for new voluntary fairways along the Pacific Coast. The entire Draft PAC-PARS with all enclosures and appendices is posted and open for comment on the Federal Register. It’s also available in its entirety on the USCG Navigation Center’s website. All comments should be submitted via the Federal Register website by the October 25th, 2022 deadline.
