The $4 million reconstruction project at Memorial Wharf in Edgartown that has been under way all winter hit another milestone this week when the pavilion was lowered into place. A major public works effort by the town in the face of rising seas, the project has included raising the wharf about a foot and a half and rebuilding it, with a goal of shoring it up for decades to come.

Construction began this fall and is on target to be completed by Memorial Day.

The contractor for the project is BTT Marine Construction of Boston.
