OB Pier To Open By Memorial Day

It's been nearly two months since the OB Pier closed after being battered by storms and high tide, but the city is hoping to have it open by Memorial Day Weekend.

Mayor Faulconer and City Councilwoman Jennifer Campbell will announce the repairs. The pier took a beating in January, with some of the railing breaking and floating to shore. Repairs to the railing, plus sewer, water and electrical work is expected to cost about $430,000.

The popular OB Pier draws more than 500,000 people every year. It's the longest concrete pier in the world.
