Repairs to be costly on pier that was burned in 2011
Published: June 24,2013
PASCAGOULA — Work has started on repairs to a damaged part of the Pascagoula River Park pier that was burned in 2011.
Arson was suspected to be the cause of the fire; however, no arrests have been made.
Darci Crew, director of the Pascagoula Parks and Recreation Department, tells The Mississippi Press the work should be completed on or before Sept. 12.
The repairs are costing about $107,733. It could be more if pilings on the pier need replacing.
The repairs are part of a project funded by a Hurricane Katrina-related Community Development Block Grant. The second phase will be done on the east side of Lowery Island.
Other things to be added include lighting, a boat launch, parking, landscaping, and an educational sign that teaches visitors about the wetlands.
