The original Fort De Soto Bay Pier was constructed in 1943, reconfigured in 1960, and reconstructed in 1984. A significant repair was performed in 2007. With continued deterioration, the pier was scheduled for replacement. A grant from the FTA provided $1 million for the project’s environmental assessment and design. The environmental assessment resulted in the preparation of a Type 1 Categorial Exclusion meeting requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).  The Type 1 Categorical Exclusion was approved by FTA on February 9, 2021.
