The weekend cold front that blew in with high winds and high surf damaged the Tony Saprito Fishing Pier on the east side of the Ringling Bridge.
The pier was built with special wooden panels that are designed to pop out during high surf. That design limits damage to the underlying concrete deck.
During the weekend, those panels popped out. Once they are replaced, the pier will reopen. Officials could not confirm a timeframe for those repairs.
