Forest Service proposes to replace Zephyr Cove pier

Tribune staff report

The U.S. Forest Service is asking for public input on a proposed replacement of the pier at Zephyr Cove Resort. The decades-old pier is in need of replacement to meet current building codes, according to a statement from the Forest Service.

The proposed replacement pier would be about the same size as the current pier, which is 358 feet long by 18 feet wide. The fueling dock would be reused and would be connected to the new pier by gangways. Water, sewer, electrical, gas and fire department lines would be run through the new pier from existing connections on the shore. The abutment that anchors the pier to the shore would also be replaced.

Work could begin as early as this fall and would take several months to complete.

Comments are most helpful if received by Aug. 3, according to the Forest Service. For more information, contact Matt Dickinson at 530-543-2769 or visit
