FEMA is covering 75% of the total cost for the repair project, which is more than $19 million. Twelve damaged piers are included in this project; eight of them are fixed wood and four are floating wood. The project also includes repairs to the observation platform, access ramps for those with disabilities and all of the water, electric, sanitary, and fuel system utilities on the damaged docks.
