St. Tammany Fishing Pier Takes a Hit from Hurricane Zeta

St. Tammany Fishing Pier Takes a Hit from Hurricane Zeta

 

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced that the St. Tammany Fishing Pier will remain closed until early spring 2021, as the Pier sustained significant damage from Hurricane Zeta.
 
“The Pier suffered damage that has made it unsafe for patrons, and that must be repaired before work on Phase II can begin. Therefore, we have made the decision to close now for the winter,” Cooper said. “We appreciate the patience of our patrons, and we look forward to reopening in 2021 with a more expanded Pier and even more fishing opportunities.”
 
Crews will work to repair the Pier in the coming weeks. Following the repair, construction on Phase II of the St. Tammany Fishing Pier is expected to begin in early December. $390,000 in funding was approved for Phase II of the St. Tammany Fishing Pier Offshore project earlier this year. This estimated total cost of project is $1.3 million, a portion of which will be funded through a grant from the Wallop Breaux Public Access and Boating Facility through Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries in the amount of $992,0458.50. This project includes developing one of the twin spans (WEST side) 2500-foot section of the Pier, currently closed to public use; shade structures with benches, portable restroom structures with cleaning stations and fishing platforms, as well as the installation of guardrails, and exterior lighting. Cost estimates to repair the damage from Hurricane Zeta have not been finalized.
