LOCATION: Osterville, MA
COMPLETION DATE: Fall 2021
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This project reflects our maintenance crew installing new IPE decking on a pier in Oyster Harbors. By using stainless steel screws to increase longevity and prevent rust, upon completion of decking, the old pier was demolished, as well as the old cross bracing. New cross bracing had been installed using a 3”x8” pressure treated lumber and galvanized hardware. This new cross bracing restricts the amount of lateral movement in the pier. Once these phases were complete, the crew installed 2 sets of TaylorMade Boat Whips. The boat whips are used to prevent boats from rubbing against the pier.
