The pier at Pismo Beach along the Central Coast is closer to reopening.
Construction crews removed a crane from the site earlier this week.
The structure has been closed for more than a year while undergoing a face-lift.
And it looks like it will be opening ahead of schedule.
Crews are now working to finish makeovers for the plaza and parking lot.
The pier will officially re-open Saturday, October 20th, during the 72nd annual Pismo Beach Clam festival.
