East 18th St. Pier Restoration
A Measure DD Project

Project Description

Measure DD 18th St Pier PictureThis project restored the East 18th Street Pier, part of City of Oakland Landmark and National Historic Landmark District. Major reconstruction was required because the engineering assessment determined that the piers which extend down into in the Lake bottom were failing and the steps that originally descended to the water had entirely collapsed. The existing rails and columns on the top of the deck were salvaged and reused. The following original historic architectural elements on the Pier were replicated and installed on the structure:
• Decorative lights, mounted on the four columns on the west side of the Pier.
• Stairs on the west side of the Pier which descend to the water’s edge.
• A 7-foot high wall on the east side of the pier.
