With the announcement Thursday by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources that construction on the pier would begin in mid-November and that it should be completed within 15 months...
The new plans call for the pier to be built roughly 300 feet east of the old pier site to get it away from an area of beach that blew through to Alabama 182 when Hurricane Ivan destroyed the pier in September 2004, Boyd said.
It will be 1,512 feet long, 20 feet wide and have a positive elevation to the decking of 20 feet above sea level, according to engineering specifications. The old pier was 875 feet long, 14 feet wide and had a positive elevation of 18 feet.

Thats great news! I wonder if they are planning on building it with the "blow out decking" for future storms? Over 1500 feet long......is that longer than P'cola's pier?

Dragged a many a shark off the old one when I was a kid. Lets hope that the new one will be as good. There used to be a old guy in a little flat bottom boat that would haul out your line as far as it would go, just attach a $5.00 bill to your hook.
