Lowenthal is the 68th Long Beach Harbor Commissioner since the current commission structure was formed in 1925.
This reappointment comes almost two months after the Port of Long Beach and International Transportation Service (ITS) completed the $55 million Pier G Wharf Improvements Project.
More recently, the Port of Long Beach decided to extend HDR’s contract for the final design of the Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility until 2027.
