Marina Fishing Pier Closed Due to Erosion, Will Re-Open in April

We just found this on the Des Moines Marina Facebook Page, posted just before Noon on Monday, Feb. 25:

NOTICE: MARINA FISHING PIER CLOSED – Due to erosion under the apron leading out to the pier.

The pier is expected to be closed until mid-April. An alternative pier is located at Redondo Beach; next to Redondo Salty’s. (Street parking only, at night.)

We apologize for any inconveniences.

We’re trying to get more details, but as many of our Readers may recall there was a major king tide/windstorm in December, 2012. At that time, Waterland Blog Photographer David Sharpe went out and took some great pics, and we also received some from Janel Stoneback and Mel Ponder (click images to see larger versions):
