Construction started today to fix the pier at the end of Williams Blvd on Lake Pontchartrain.

It’s been closed since Hurricane Isaac when the entrance ramps were damaged by the high waves.

The city will extend the ramps and add lights and rails to make it safe again.

The project will be over before the end of the year, possibly as early as October.
