Work will begin to replace the Bayport Pier on October 28, 2019.

Purchasing and Contracts Manager James Wunderle explained that the differences in estimated completion time and cost are a result of the shipwreck that was discovered after the Bayport Pier was being assessed for damages following hurricane Irma in 2017.  https://www.hernandosun.com/index.php/article/bayport-pier-reconstruction-kicks-archaeological-assessment

With the preservation of the wreckage now a factor in the rebuilding of the pier, an additional $94,585.95 has been added to the cost, and a contract awarded to Cardno, Inc. for the oversight and “Cultural Resources Monitoring Services.”   Wunderle explained that buoys will be placed around the perimeter of the shipwreck before the pier construction commences, and that the monitoring part of the contract pertains to construction of the pier not violating the boundary of the buoys.

Wunderle also reported that FEMA funding is available for this project, “appropriate methods and processes” must be followed in order for the county to be reimbursed.
