GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) — Alabama conservation officials say a more than $2 million renovation of the fishing pier at Gulf State Park should be finished in July. 

A statement from the agency said decking, handrails and lights are being replaced as part of the work on the pier, which extends more than 1500 feet into the Gulf of Mexico. A new system to dispose of fish-cleaning waste and an observation deck also are being added. And the concessions area and restrooms are being improved.

The work took longer than expected, but officials say the delay couldn't be avoided.
