Pier Renewal

Project Information

The original Santa Monica Municipal Pier structure was built in the early 1900s and has been through several remodels over its 100-plus year life. The Pier Renewal project upgraded a signification portion of the pier stretching from the edge of the sand to approximately 365 feet westward over the Pacific Ocean, providing increased structural soundness and extending the pier’s service life.

The Pier Renewal project involved:
• Construction of a 20-foot wide pedestrian trestle on the south side of the pier, beginning at the western edge of the Newcomb Pier and extending 175 feet west around the construction zone
• Installation of new concrete columns
• Removal of the existing timber columns, timber substructure, and installation of the new concrete substructure
• Installation of the new timber decking

Construction began in April 2013 and concluded in June 2014.
