There have been adjustments made, including using concrete, to make sure the pier could withstand hurricane-strength winds.

In 2016, the original pier was destroyed by Hurricane Matthew.

Consensus Construction is the contractor for the pier project. The town manager said it’s expected to have at least one restaurant and several vendors.

The Surfside Beach Town Council meets July 13 at 6:30 p.m.
