Elm Street Pier Reopening This Summer

Elm Street Pier Reopening This Summer

After a portion of the Elm Street Pier was heavily damaged during the onslaught of winter storms that we had back in December and January, we're happy to report that we've issued an RFP that will allow us to re-open the popular Point Pier in time for the summer season!

If all goes well, we should be able to have the pier back open by July 1st for passive recreational use; and should voters pass this November’s upcoming infrastructure bond, we’ll also be able to look forward to christening a brand new structure with touch-and-go facilities next summer.

As outlined in the RFP, our immediate plan is to deconstruct the unstable outer portion of the pier and add an extended floating dock and a series of swim ladders that will allow for easier and safer recreational access in and out of the water. Unfortunately, because of the temporary nature of the configuration, we’ll be asking touch-and-go boaters to utilize any of Newport Harbor’s other touch and go docks until the pier can be rebuilt in full over the winter.
