$1 Million Fishing Spot to Be Built at RCA Pier Park

Bait those hooks: A new $1-million fishing pier on the Delaware River is expected to open late this year near the Adventure Aquarium.

A result of about three years' collaboration among nonprofits and local governments, the pier would connect with a six-foot-wide walkway to the RCA Pier Park beyond the end of Market Street. The pier would parallel the shore rather than jut into the river.

The full length of the new RCA Fishing Pier will be more than 130 feet from end to end, including the walkway, according to plans in the bid documents. The pier itself would be about 80 feet long and 36 feet at its widest point, the plans note.
