SURFSIDE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Surfside Beach Town Council has chosen a design option for its new pier.

According to town officials, the design will enlarge the two existing buildings and add a third building and public restrooms.

Additionally, the pier foundation will be constructed to support a second story on all buildings in the future.

Council members decided on the design at a meeting Monday night, just days after they were presented with three options.

According to the design’s financing overview, the estimated cost for the project is $10.98 million. That includes a FEMA grant of $9.75 million.

The grant will go toward reconstructing the pier following damage caused by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. It will be rebuilt as a concrete structure.

According to WMBF News partner My Horry News, construction of the pier is expected to take between 15 to 18 months and could begin in December 2019.
