Post Date:04/18/2019 1:10 PM

VenicePierDeckApril2019Venice Municipal Fishing Pier rehabilitation began Monday, May 13, 2019.

The rehabilitation includes removal and replacement of all the deck and railing material with longer-lasting IPE wood, replacement of the pole lighting fixtures with sea turtle-friendly under handrail lights, and related improvements.

The pier rehabilitation started with demolition seaward from the bait shop on Monday, May 13. During the initial phase, public access will be limited to the southern half of the pier between the entrance and the bait shop. Once demolition is complete in the initial phase, the remainder of the pier will be closed completely until reconstruction is complete. 

Work will be conducted Monday through Saturday from approximately 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for an estimated 90 days.
