The Venice Municipal Fishing Pier is scheduled to shut down a week from today for renovations.

Starting on May 13th, the city will begin removing and replacing all the deck and railing material and upgrading the pier lights with turtle friendly, under handrail lights.

The city is holding an informational meeting this morning at 9 under the canopy on the south side of Sharky’s restaurant.

The project is expected to take 90 days to complete, weather permitting.
