The following information is being disseminated in order to provide the public with accurate, up to date information on the state of our World Famous Pier, which sustained damage during Hurricane Matthew.
The City of Flagler Beach in conjunction with Logan Diving & Salvage and Hal Jones Contractors Inc. have begun the preliminary inspection process of our Pier. Starting today crews from the aforementioned partners will be conducting a comprehensive substructure assessment. The assessment will document any/all damage sustained, provide recommendations for repairs and outline a plan to make the Pier safe for utilization by the public. The topical inspections of the Pier will begin today and weather permitting, divers will begin their underwater inspection in the next 24-48 hours.
“City Manager Larry Newsom stated “Our Pier is a landmark that draws thousands of visitors to our City and we’re working to establish just how much damage was sustained as a result of Hurricane Matthew”. Newsom continued by stating “Once our Team completes its comprehensive assessment we’ll listen to their recommendations and begin effort to insure that our Pier is once again safe for all to enjoy; even though it’s about 150 feet shorter than it was”.
If there are any questions regarding the comprehensive assessment of the Pier inspection/assessment, please feel free to contact City Hall at (386) 517-2000.
