The Fort Morgan Pier, which has been closed for several years, will soon be available on the tip of the Fort Morgan peninsula. The renovated pier will have L-shaped dimensions of 305 feet by 210 feet and 40 feet wide. At mean tide, the pier floor will be 8 feet off the water's surface.
The total cost of design, construction and oversight of the new pier was $3.2 million. Due to the ravages of numerous tropical storms, the old pier had to be demolished and old barges removed. The new pier will be much more storm resistant, with a steel sheet pile and a concrete platform. The railings are made of cables. It will also be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant. Additionally, there will be ADA parking spaces and a better parking area for anglers. Parking near the adjacent boat ramp has recently been rebuilt too.
