Work to refurbish the city’s Conlon Pier, located behind the Coastline Inn, is now underway. The project involves the demolition of two old round concrete and metal cofferdams that flank either end of the pier. In place of the cofferdams, which were believed to have been constructed in the 1960’s for mooring vessels, will be wooden platforms supported by piles, similar to other parts of the Riverwalk. Conlon pier is a popular spot for catching views of the river and is the only spot along the Riverwalk where fishing is allowed. The $500,000 project is expected to be complete in early 2020.
