Repairs were underway Monday at the Luzerne County-owned River Common fishing pier in Wilkes-Barre, which sustained damage from this year’s ice jam on the Susquehanna River. Several large wall blocks known as “cut stones” fell over because the footing supporting them deteriorated, which means new anchoring is required before the stones are set back in place, officials have said.

The project will cost approximately $89,000 and include repairing of two other stones that have started moving. It will be covered by the county’s natural-gas recreation funding.
