The new Navarre Beach Pier opened on June 5, 2010 after five years of patience and hard work by Santa Rosa County citizens, staff and contractors after Hurricanes Ivan and Dennis destroyed the existing pier in 2004 and 2005. An extension to the original 1,500 ft pier design by 45 feet makes the this version the longest pier in Florida and the Gulf of Mexico.
Some of the features include:
– Concrete piles: 150- two foot square concrete piles totaling over 10,000 feet in length combined
– An octagonal end design with a surface area of approximately 3,800 square feet
Deck: over 800 breakaway wood panels, which will detach during heavy wave action and help preserve integrity of the structure, reducing possible storm repair costs
– Seven potable water spigots
– Deck height- 30 feet above the water
– Surface: over 32,000 square feet of accessible surface
– Railing: more than 3,000 feet of handrail with no obstructions located above the railing which would interfere with fishing
– Attendant building with stair and handicap accessible ramp access to pier
– Over 90 low wattage lights and concrete bollards to protect sea turtle nesting
– Sixteen handicap accessible railing locations
Three bracketed photos were taken with a handheld Nikon D7200 and combined with Photomatix to create this HDR image. Additional adjustments were made in Photoshop CS6.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~Jeremiah 29:11
