Bayport Pier Ready For Upgrade

Bayport Pier in Bayport, Fla.

Bayport, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-There is good news if you like fishing on the Bayport Pier. The long-awaited reconstruction of the pier is expected to be completed sometime in 2018. 

The pier suffered significant damage due to Hurricane Hermine back in 2016. The process to receive FEMA funding delayed the reconstruction. The project is now in the design phase and will be going out for bid shortly. 

Located at 4140 Cortez Boulevard, Bayport Park is a seven-acre Hernando County public park that sits on the Gulf of Mexico at the west end of State Road 50. It Includes a 144-foot scenic boardwalk along the coastline, shelters, picnic tables, pavilions, barbecue grills, restrooms, a paddling trail, historic markers and two boat ramps.
