Alternating North & South Beach Access Closures at St. Johns County Pier Through June 25 for Shoreline Protection Project

The north and south beach accesses at the St. Johns County Ocean and Fishing Pier will alternate closures through June 25 to accommodate work on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Shoreline Protection Project. The north access is currently closed, but it will reopen once work is complete and the contractor’s equipment moves to the pier’s south side. This transition will require the pier’s southern beach access to close for the project to continue south. The public can expect the same patterns of beach access closures as the project progresses south. 

Fishing from the pier will soon be closed to the public due to the expected sand placement extending further than the pier’s reach. However, the pier will remain open for sightseeing. Public beach access points are a short walk south of the pier parking lot at the ends of 16th Street and 15th Street.
