Point Arena Pier Will Be Closing for Repairs Sporadically Over the Next Couple Months


The following is a press release issued by the Point Arena Pier:

Greetings from Point Arena Pier,

A long-anticipated repair project at the Point Arena Pier is slated to begin August 22.

In January 2017, large storm waves damaged the Point Arena Pier — nine fender piles were torn off the pier and the boarding float guide pile was sheared off at the ocean floor. The damage was classified as a disaster by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The City obtained funding through CalOES & FEMA and the necessary permits from the Coastal Commission and other agencies to repair the pier by replacing the damaged fender piles and the floating dock guide pile.

The first phase of the project starts August 22 with the replacement of the floating dock guide pile.

This will require the closure of the pier to all vehicles for the week of August 22. The boat hoist will not be in operation during that time.

We anticipate the project could take most of the week; we will reopen the pier to boat traffic as soon as possible. 

Please call the Harbor Office at 707-882-2122 in advance of any planned days for launch the week of August 22 so we can advise you of the current situation. Information on the status of the closure will be left on the answering machine daily.

The second phase will install nine fender pilings, which are most likely to be installed in October. That phase of the project shouldn’t impact pier operations as significantly.

We understand the hardship this closure may cause. We ask for your patience as we conduct repairs which will benefit for the entire fishing community.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Point Arena Pier at 707-882-2583 or City Hall at 707-882-2122 (admin@pointarena.ca.gov).  

Thank you,

Point Arena Pier
