A gathering of officials from Imperial Beach and the Port of San Diego hammered in a final, ceremonial nail into the last plank of the refurbished Imperial Beach pier recently, marking the project’s completion.
The project’s contractor, Just Construction Inc., finished the refurbishment on time and within budget, guaranteeing that the pier would be open for the Memorial Day weekend. The cost of the project was $420,000, according to the port district.
Originally constructed in the 1960s, the pier was destroyed by storms in the mid-1980s, but was rebuilt. An upgrade was completed in 2006, with the port district assuming much of the cost.
The port district manages and maintains the city’s oceanfront through an agreement it struck with the city about 20 years ago.
