Surfside Beach Pier Construction Completion Date Pushed Back

The completion date for the Surfside Pier has been pushed back once again. Yesterday, the town held a meeting to address concerns residents have about the finishing date being moved to somewhere between December 2022 and March 2023. Town Administrator Bill Shanahan said completion of the pier was pushed back due to supply chain issues and one of the biggest issues has been getting siding. So far, Surfside has spent $12 million on the pier and they have about $6 million left to spend. The pier was damaged six years ago during Hurricane Matthew and has undergone construction since December 2020.
