Document Description
The proposed Project would increase Wharf resiliency and improve public safety by expanding a section of the Wharf’s existing narrow trestle system and by completing necessary repairs. The Project would also provide improved public access with an expanded bridge deck that reduces pedestrian and vehicular conflicts and by constructing two new restroom facilities for beach and Wharf users. Wharf expansion would add resiliency to the most vulnerable portion of the Wharf that has sustained the most critical damage in the past. Expansion would include a new composite pile and timber structure expansion area. The new expansion area would widen the trestle 16 feet for approximately 458 feet. This would widen the trestle to 36 feet to match the first 85-foot long portion of the trestle at the foot of the Wharf. Up to 120, 16-inch composite (fiberglass) piles would be added as part of the expansion. Fiberglass piles would have High-density polyethylene (HDPE) sleeves to provide UV and battering protection. The timber decking expansion area would be constructed with Ammoniacal Copper Zinc Arsenate (ACZA) treated timber. The expansion would result in an overwater increase of approximately 7,400 square feet. As part of the expansion, two separate travel areas would be created, one for pedestrians and one for vehicles. This is anticipated to improve public access and safety.
