Repair work on White Rock’s landmark pier has wrapped up – three weeks ahead of schedule.
City officials announced Wednesday morning that final cleanup steps were underway; and the barge used during the work would be pulling out with the 2 p.m. tide.
“The repairs went well and we’re pleased to fully re-open the pier ahead of schedule,” said Jamie Leggatt, the city’s communications officer.
The work – repairing and replacing damaged piles and cross-braces – got underway in mid-March and was expected to continue through to mid-May, with intermittent closures along the way.
It was identified as necessary during a 2010 inspection. Council voted in February to move it forward, at an estimated cost of $405,000.
