Open Bird Island Pier to visitors this summer

A recent News brief stated that the efforts of Rep. Brian Higgins resulted in the Army Corps of Engineers reversing its decision to fence off a popular fishing spot near the Black Rock Channel. This was great news for those who frequent this popular spot for both fishing and recreational use.

I would like to know how much longer the Corps of Engineers is going to leave the Bird Island Pier fenced off to pedestrian traffic. If memory serves me correctly, this will be the third summer that locals and visitors will be prohibited from enjoying this beautiful summer destination. Perhaps one of our local representatives could look into this matter and have the corps commence with repairs so we can once again enjoy this awesome local treasure.
