Is there any update on the piers that were damaged or destroyed by Isabel or for that matter the property damage I heard the Outer banks still has a long way to go.

I haven't heard anything but rumors. Some good some bad. Th only one I know is going to be fixed is Sandbridge.

Here is what I know from running the license fund program.

1. Sand Bridge, will be repaired and improved to phase one (improved decking and approach) Phase 2 which is the extension of the pier is still up in the air.

2. Cape Charles fun pier, this facility was totally funded and should make for an excellent bay side fishing pier. Completiion date has not been set.

Newport News Wave screen: this project5 was approved fro funding and will convert the wave screen near the Monitor Merrimak Bridge into as killer fishing pier. I do not have a completition date as of yet.

Buckroe Observation Pier, this proposal will come up in January.

Harrison's Pier

I heard Judy Boone doesn't own the Pier her brother does and he's building it either the size it was or concrete and about 1/2 the size...I haven't heard when they're starting to reconstruct it but hopefully soon.

Also, does any one have any word on Grandview Pier in Va. That was my favorite pier. Good fishing, always had cool people there, to boot.

It is in the works to make the Buckroe pier a fishing pier, using license money. Stay tuned.
