Gov. Maggie Hassan is helping dedicate the newly constructed Hampton State Pier.
The pier is the only public access, multi-use facility in Hampton Harbor. It supports the commercial fishing industry and charter fishing boats, and includes a public boat launch ramp.
The new pier was built after engineer divers who studied the pier in 2009 determined that it had severely deteriorated. A contract was awarded to Sea and Shore Contracting to replace the commercial wharf and floating docks, and Appledore Marine Engineering provided oversight and quality control services.
Hassan will be joined at the pier Monday by representatives from the Department of Ports and Harbors.
