Folly fishing pier maintenance to continue through summer, no dances will be held

A maintenance project at the Folly Beach Edwin S. Taylor Pier will continue throughout the summer, forcing the cancellation of some events.

Regular operations and fishing tournaments will continue as scheduled, but the pier's Moonlight Mixers dance series will be suspended.

During the project, portions of the nearly 19-year-old pier, including its diamond head, will occasionally be closed. Most of the main walkway will remain open and operational.

The first phase of the project, which included replacing 750 bolts and 10 timber cross braces, is complete. The second phase includes assessing, repairing and encapsulating pilings on the 1,045-foot-long pier. It is expected to be completed in the fall.

The pier is open from 7 a.m. to sunset in March, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. in April, and 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. May through September.
