Scotton Landing Fishing Pier reopens
after re-decking project completed
DOVER (Nov. 25, 2015) – Scotton Landing Fishing Pier on Barkers Landing Road has reopened, after completion of the pier’s re-decking project, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today.
The project involved removing and replacing the existing wooden deck and handrails. Owned and maintained by the Division of Fish & Wildlife, the fishing pier was originally built in 1986 and has become a popular fishing and crabbing attraction with local residents and visitors to the tidal St. Jones River along the southbound side of Route 1.
