Meldahl Fishing Pier
Foster, KY United States | 2014
In 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated the mid-Atlantic coast. Seaside Heights was among those communities hit hard. The Casino Beach Pier, was known for its amusement park (also known as Casino Pier) which had entertained hundreds of thousands of tourists as a premier family center with numerous rides, games and concession stands since 1932.
The images surfacing, post Sandy, of the Pier revealed a once magnificent roller coaster, now sitting in the ocean. In addition to the roller coaster, much of the Pier itself had been washed away. Devastation on this level created a significant impact on the economic and cultural pride of the town. However, the Casino Pier is a staple in the Seaside Height community that would not go down without a fight. By the spring of 2013, the wheels were in motion to rebuild the Casino Pier and return it to its once iconic status in the community.
Hot-Dip galvanizing had been used on many of the original pillars of the amusement park so the decision to continue to take advantage of the durability and sustainability of the galvanizing coating was never in question. The rehabilitation of the pier came first so when the work began on the Casino Pier Amusement Park, there was a desire to get it completed expeditiously. The galvanizer needed to have a large enough kettle to handle the long beam spans and the capacity to maintain the schedule.
Although parts of the Pier were re-opened earlier, the grand re-opening took place in the spring of 2016. In the end, the Casino Pier and Breakwater Beach Waterpark emerged from the destruction of Sandy, reestablishing itself as one of the top Jersey Shore family destinations with a new multi-level 36-hole Mountain Miniature golf course, an expansion to the go-kart track, and a brand new wave pool that features two twisting slides.
