Repairs to the Cabrillo Beach parking lot that was damaged by a winter storm in 1987 will begin in August.
Half of the 320 spaces at the parking lot off Stephen White Drive in San Pedro were lost when pounding waves sent boulders flying from a sea wall onto the lot.
Bids for the repair job are expected to go out Tuesday, said officials of the city Recreation and Parks Department, which operates the lot. Construction is to begin in August and will cost about $400,000.
Lot manager Jean Thaxton said the missing spaces are badly needed because the lot serves a popular beach, museum and boat launch area.
