Both Pier 101 Restaurant & Bar and our Folly Beach Pier gift shop and restrooms will remain open during construction. Pier gift shop hours are subject to change.
The Folly Beach Pier will still host the following events in 2019 prior to the space closing for construction:
The pier will be closed for a minimum of 18 months during the walkway construction phase. The rectangle deck area behind Pier 101 restaurant and the gift shop will remain open during this time. This will be an excellent area to view the ongoing construction project and progress. After the pier walkway is complete, a ramp to the side of the pier will be created for access onto the pier. The rectangular deck behind Pier 101 and the gift shop will be replaced next. This phase is anticipated to take four months to complete.
During the initial stage of construction, access around and under the pier will be restricted. Heavy equipment and construction materials will be loaded onto the pier making it an unsafe pedestrian and swimming area in the construction zone.
It is anticipated that two-thirds of the current parking spaces will be available during the new pier construction process. There may be times when fewer spaces are available, as well as times when more will be available.
