Rutherford Pier serves as the northern boundary of the harbor basin and will include a solid bulkhead wall connected to the north side of the pier to act as a breakwater structure and block sand from migrating into the basin. Pier length is approx. 1,100 linear feet. The structure includes 4 covered platforms and a 30’x50’ fishing platform with a 10’x20’ portion that is covered. The Parking Lot has 130 spaces available for boaters and Rutherford Pier visitors. Dredge material from the basin was used to expand the existing beach north of the pier from 150’ to 250’.
