In the Media: Designing a More Resilient Landmark

By Joe VanHoose

August 12, 2019

The Jacksonville Beach Pier was closed after high surf churned up by Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 knocked several sections off the end of it. But it will reopen in two years as a much stronger, resilient structure.

RS&H Senior Engineer Steven Starnes told Weather.com the pier is being shored up with stronger and larger pilings, and the end of the structure will slope up 8 feet higher than it previously did. Starnes is serving as project manager on the new RS&H-designed pier.

"What we are designing for is essentially a 20-foot wave crest and the forces associated with that crest,” Starnes says in the story on The Weather Channel's website.
