Redondo Pier to remain closed through August

The Des Moines Council will discuss repair plans at the Sept. 5 meeting.

Redondo Pier, a summertime dwelling for Federal Way and Des Moines locals, will remain closed through August due to required structural repairs.

In July, the city of Des Moines closed public access to the pier, located on Redondo Beach waterfront, due to structural safety concerns needing further inspection.

Recently, the structural assessment was completed and the city’s chief operations officer Daniel J. Brewer will discuss the state of the pier with the Des Moines City Council at the council meeting held Thursday, Sept. 5, according to The Waterland Blog.

“I can tell you that the required repairs are significant, in both scope of cost,” Brewer told The Waterland Blog. “Until repairs can be made, the pier must remain closed for safety reasons. We will be providing more in-depth information to the public once we have had a chance to discuss the needed repairs with the City Council.”

A piece of the adjacent floating dock near the south side boarding floats has been removed for safety, Brewer said.

Des Moines has been awarded a grant that will be used to rebuild both of the floating docks at Redondo in the near future, the blog stated.

Discussion of the pier will take place during next month’s Des Moines City Council meeting at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5 at Des Moines City Hall (21630 11th Ave. S.).
