LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Port of Los Angeles has completed a 10-year channel-deepening project to accommodate modern, bigger ships.

A port statement Wednesday says the 45-foot-deep Main Channel, West Basin Channel and East Basin Channel were deepened to 53 feet during the $370 million project.

The project conducted by the Army Corps of Engineers relocated 15 million cubic yards of dredge materials to various sites throughout the port, including 104 acres of replacement shallow water habitat for fish and birds in the outer harbor.
