CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Feb. 16, 2017) – The West Coast Inland Navigation District, in partnership with Charlotte County Community Services, will be closing portions of the Boca Grande Fishing Pier starting Feb. 20 through 25. The removal and repairing of multiple sections of the Gasparilla Pass train trestle is due to deteriorated conditions and concerns regarding boater safety.

Barge activity, as well as divers, will be in the area for the removing and repairing of the train trestle, so please be cautious of this activity when enjoying our beautiful pass.
