The City of Capitola is thrilled to announce a groundbreaking event on Friday, September 22 at 2:30 p.m. at the base of the Wharf. This event will celebrate the start of construction on the long-awaited Capitola Wharf Resiliency and Public Access Improvement Project, Phase 2, which includes repairs to storm damage suffered in early 2023.
In addition to repairing the storm damage, this project widens the Wharf to make it more resilient against future storms. The project also includes new decking, a new railing, repairs to and replacement of 148 piles, utility repairs, repairs to the public restrooms at the end of the Wharf, and the installation of new public restrooms near the Wharf entrance. Site preparation and other work activities are anticipated to begin the week of September 18, 2023, and last through late 2024.
The groundbreaking event will feature Capitola Mayor, City staff, and community speakers, all of whom are excited for the start of the Wharf Resiliency Project.
