FEMA Waterfront Repairs at Maritime Park, Sanders Beach Beginning in December
The City of Pensacola will begin repairs this month to waterfront areas of Community Maritime Park and Sanders Beach that were damaged during Hurricane Sally. These projects are the first of multiple Hurricane Sally repairs to be completed in the coming months as the city continues to work with FEMA to restore Pensacola's waterfront.
The waterfront areas of Community Maritime Park and Sanders Beach will be closed while repairs are completed. The anticipated project schedule is as follows:
- Community Maritime Park: Repairs underway, with an estimated completion date of April 8, 2022.
- Sanders Beach Piers and Boardwalk: Repairs will begin Dec. 6, with an estimated completion date of April 1, 2022.
All remaining FEMA-funded projects related to Hurricane Sally damage in the City of Pensacola are expected to be completed by Summer 2022, except for Wayside Park.
The public's patience is appreciated as the city works through the FEMA process required to move forward with repairs to City of Pensacola parks, boardwalks, waterfront areas and other public amenities that were damaged by Hurricane Sally. Additional FEMA Project Status Updates (Subject to Change)
