YOKOSUKA, Japan (Aug. 19, 2020) – One of the anchors of Floating Pier Number 5, Berth Number 3, on Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka (CFAY), is lifted out of the water prior to the complete removal of the temporary pier, Aug. 19. A new pier will be constructed at the site, and its completion is expected in 2022.
