The City plans to perform rehabilitation work on portions of the Pier that have exhibited degradation from exposure to the marine environment.
The areas located between the second and third diamonds still consist of what was constructed in 1928 and have deteriorated over the years since. Rehabilitation work is expected to be completed in a series of phases. In conjunction with the necessary rehabilitation work the City will be reviewing opportunities for new lighting, railing, bait shack locations, seating, public art, and other design elements.
The City received five bids to perform the rehabilitation work and on January 17, 2017 Cushman Contracting Corporation was awarded a contract in the amount of $6,462,000. Depending on weather and material delivery dates, staff expects construction to begin in March 2017.
