This contract provides for professional engineering services to prepare the design and construction plans for the replacement of the Fort DeSoto Bay Pier and Dock.  The Pier was originally constructed in 1969, reconstructed in 1984, and repaired in 2006.

The pier structure serves as a docking point for multiple agencies and users including Tampa Bay Marine Pilots, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Florida Department of Environmental Protection.  It is expected that the new pier and dock will resemble the existing structure, utilize materials with a greater ability to withstand the aggressive environment with a desired minimum of a 50 year life, and incorporate the needs for all dock users and meet requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
