Pier will open sometime next year, per their words. No time given??? Still need to replace two pillars at the end of the pier and the crew working on the pier right now don't know how to do it. So, a new contract will be made for some other crew to work on that. That's the South Caroline state goverment for y'all. But, it's the same with all goverments. The old hurry up and wait deal.
However, the surf has been pretty good this year. The word on the Spring Maid pier is that it may be open sometime this year...???
