The Grays Ferry Crescent Fishing Pier is a special feature along the river. The pier, originally a fire pier for DuPont Chemical’s Marshal Labs, was in a deteriorated condition and unsafe for use. Urban Engineers developed a method to structurally strengthen the pier to allow pedestrian loads. Simone-Collins provided amenities to the pier, including a bench and lighting, beckoning trail users out over the river. Construction was performed by Seravalli Inc.

Fire pier rehabilitation was completed in December 2012. The pier is now a popular location for fishing, relaxing and enjoying unique views of the river.
