“Repairs are on schedule to have the pier opened by Memorial Day,” said City spokesman Alec Phillip. “City crews did the railing, water and sewer work. SDG&E crews did the work on the electric line.”

Repairs estimated at a cost of $430,000 by City officials were made to the iconic OB Pier, which has been closed since mid-January when strong winter storms and king tides damaged the structure.

City staff determined more than 2,200 feet of guard rail, electric, water and sewer lines needed serious repair or replacement.

At more than 1,970 feet, the Ocean Beach Pier is the second longest on the West Coast, and the longest concrete pier in the world. The pier opened in 1966 and more than 500,000 people visit it every year.
