Summary

Significance: They are located within the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark. They are integral parts of Dry Dock Nos. 2 & 3. The docks and their walls were built at the time of intense military build-up directly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and are significant through their association with the expansion of the dry dock facilities during WWII. The integrity of GD3 has been compromised due to the removal of the projecting pier portion.
