Los Muertos Pier - big changes!!

The Los Muertos Pier (south side, Los Muertos beach, at the foot of Francisca Rodriguez) is being torn down, to make the way for a new and larger one. And Francisca Rodriguez - the street which runs west from Olas Altas to the Pier - is to be "renovated" - to a 'mall', or?

Does anyone know when they plan on opening up the new pier? Where are the boat taxis going to depart from? etc

Am I wrong to just resist change? Why are they doing this?

The city thinks 'modernisation', not realising that this is not making PV more attractive, It will end up looking like Miami. Sad.

I hope the new pier will be ready on time. This is prime time for tourists to visit Puerto Vallarta and that area is a great and popular area to meet and have a great day in. Does this mean the area will be closed until work completed ????.

Since they're just now beginning to tear down the old pier, I doubt that a new pier would be ready anytime in this high season. "Timing" on many projects here has often been questionable. The absence of an operating pier will hamper not only the water taxis to southern beaches and pickup and drop off from tour boats and fishing boats, but also the individuals who use the pier for fishing in order to sell and put food on their table. Perhaps some locals can post occasional photos of the progress as time goes on.

Nothing like having the "powers that be" come out of a horrific economic low season, and come up with a great idea (sarcasm) to add one more hurdle for those looking to try and recover (ie: water taxis). What water taxi customers are going to want to load from the beach during high season, when the waves get crazy?

And the businesses located right at the pier can't be too happy about this either, as it's going to make customers shy away due to noise and construction.
