Pier at Ferry Point, Miller/Knox Historic Rehabilitation

Attribution-NoDerivs CC BY-ND

Located at the Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline in Point Richmond, California, the Ferry Point Pier was originally used as a passenger ferry and freight barge terminus and landing for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad system. Interactive Resources designed the rehabilitation of the pier and approaches, providing safe public access to this unique and historic asset. During World War II, Ferry Point was the destination for some of the longest steam locomotive hauls in railroad history. The pier was rehabilitated as a public recreational pier and historic structure. The rehabilitation included replacing the foundations and abutments; reconstruction of the right, left and center approach wharves; repairs to the structure machinery and supports; stabilization of the freight apron; installation of metal railings at all deck edges; and installation of wood wheel blocks and new exterior lighting fixtures.
