Port Orford is on the Oregon coast 250 miles south of the Columbia River entrance and 390 miles north of San Francisco Bay.
The project consists of a 550-foot extension of a locally-constructed breakwater and a 16-foot-deep mooring basin. Construction of the extension was completed in 1968 and of the mooring basin in 1971. The project authorization was modified by the Water Resources Development Act of 1992 to allow the Corps to maintain the authorized navigation channel within 50 feet of the port facility.
