Press Release:

Lake Worth, Fl — Lake Worth Pier Closed

The City of Lake Worth Pier will be closed Tuesday, July 18th and Wednesday, July 19th, from 6:00 am until noon for an engineering study. The City of Lake Worth apologizes for any inconvenience caused.

From this blog on July 12th, notes from the City Commission Budget Workshop on Tuesday, July 11th:

Asst. City Manager Juan Ruiz said there is an issue with “spalling concrete” (also called scaling) at the City Pier. An engineering report will be delivered in about 2 weeks. Ruiz said, “don’t want to alarm the public” and then explained the Pier may need major concrete replacement.
