in Community

The Pacifica Municipal Pier will be closed for up to a month or longer due to damages caused by high tides and large waves, officials announced Thursday.

Amid King Tides, a 40-foot section of the pier’s west facing deck and concrete railing was damaged, prompting the City’s Public Works Engineering Division to deem the Pier unsafe for users and visitors until further notice.

The city is consulting with structural engineering firms to assess the safety of the pier and to develop a plan to repair the damage.

“Based on the extent of the damage, the City anticipates that the Pacifica Municipal Pier will be closed for up to a month or longer, depending on the results of the structural safety assessment and time needed to complete the repairs,” officials said.
