Critical Repairs To The Queen Mary Begin in February


LONG BEACH — The City of Long Beach is preparing to start critical repairs to the Queen Mary, with fencing being placed around the constructi­on zone and staging areas prepared as of last week. In February, the city will begin the first phase of critical repairs, which are anticipate­d to be completed later this year, allowing the Queen Mary to reopen to the public.

The city regained control of the Queen Mary for the first time in over 40 years in June 2021. Since that time, with the help of marine engineerin­g experts and based on previous studies, the city has designed the specificat­ions and layouts for the required repairs, establishe­d milestones for the project and anticipate­s a completion date later this year. The estimated cost of the repairs will be approximat­ely $5 million.
