This project is a structural replacement of a 1,000-foot-long fishing pier into the Atlantic Ocean using a top-down construction approach. This project included the:
- Addition of pedestrian lighting, glow-in-the-dark pavers, educational placards, signage and shade structures
- Installation of upgraded drainage, water and sewer distribution lines
- Implementation of streetscaping, including lighting, sidewalks, pavement and landscaping
The walking surface and guardrail at the end of the pier form the shape of the City’s logo, a Pompano fish; the pier can withstand a Category 3 hurricane. Some of the pier’s features include shade structures, a bait shop, freshwater hose bibs, fish filleting stations, bait cutting stations and electrical outlets for maintenance staff.
