NEWPORT BEACH ― Central Avenue Pier officially opened Sept. 29, according to Newport Beach city staff. The public pier provides boaters with access to Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach.
Construction on the public dock has been completed.
The ramp is in place and the cleats are installed, Newport Beach Harbormaster Dennis Durgan confirmed.
Rules and regulations for this pier still have to be determined.
“We have yet to post signage for lengths of stay, but that will come soon,” Harbor Manager Chris Miller wrote in an email to The Log. “We’ll be discussing length of boats at this pier at the October Harbor Commission meeting.”
“The pier will be periodically closed as we start construction on the plaza in the coming weeks,” Miller added.
California Coastal Commission approved the construction of the public dock on Nov. 4, 2016.
