Officials did not provide additional information. The deteriorated pier has been damaged in the past by storms, and the museum and arts center have been frequently closed as well, including most recently in September, when storms created by Hurricane Earl damaged electrical lines and pipes there.

The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority voted in September to allocate $1 million to trimming the pier.
