At a March 7 press conference in Ocean Beach, Mayor Kevin Faulconer and District 2 City Councilmember Jennifer Campbell announced that significant repairs will be required to restore and reopen the iconic OB Pier landmark ahead of Memorial Day weekend.

In January, the pier was closed to the public for safety and repair following a series of unusually strong storms and forceful king tides that battered it. City staff determined more than 2,200 feet of pier guard rail, electric, water and sewer lines need serious repair or replacement. Fixes are underway at an estimated cost of $430,000, the City said.

“The pier will remain closed in the meantime,” said City spokesman Alec Phillipp, adding cost estimates for repair timelines, costs and projections for pier re-opening are ongoing. 

The City also attributed bluff damage south of the OB Pier six weeks ago to the impact of king tides with large surf in the 10- to 12-foot range.
