Pier 80 South (per Philaport): PIER 80 STILL IN USE, WITH PRECAUTIONS AS FOLLOWS:
Philaport has identified a section of the seawall that appears to be losing some fill material through a gap on southeast corner of Pier 80 south. We currently have Hudson Engineering looking into the situation and plan on having a dive team on site Saturday to conduct a more through investigation. In the meantime, Hudson Engineers has recommended not utilizing the south east corner for berthing operations until we can identify the problem. Like the situation recently at Pier 84 we would ask that you remain clear of the corner while docking and undocking vessels at Pier 80 south. Philaport will provide updates when appropriate.
