ROCKPORT — A January 7 storm did little to halt progress on the rebuild of the Rockport municipal pier, as a Prock Marine crew replaced pilings and the deck through driving snow.
The 30-year-old pier is getting rebuilt as part of the town’s $1.63 million infrastructure bond schedule, as approved by voters in 2019, 324 to 185.
The bond package had been introduced by the Rockport Select Board, with an estimated interest payment of 2.2 percent over 10 years.
