Oak Island Fishing Pier        910.  

Initially, the pier is open for walking and observation, in part because workers will still be installing lighting, fishing Ts, plumbing and 55 large wooden benches. Town Manager David Kelly said he expected the pier to welcome anglers on July 2, the day after the town’s Beach Day event, which will include a massive fireworks display.
The reconstructed pier fits the old footprint but seems wider because of the configuration of the rails. The architect – E.B. Pannkuk of Andrews Consulting Engineers – employed aluminum railings along the mid-and lower sections that give the space a more open view and feel.

One of the two fishing Ts will be fully handicap-accessible, Kelly said. Depending on the budget and timetable, the builder might add a third, shorter fishing T near the middle of the pier. T.D. Eure Marine Construction of Morehead City is the lead contractor.

The town will operate the tackle shop, which will have permits for sales of beer and wine. Council recently approved hiring a pier overseer, part-time seasonal staff and a manager for the pier and adjacent 801 Ocean Drive events center.
Kelly said admission to the pier would be free and visitors would be required to wear shoes or sandals.
At 27 feet above mean sea level, the pier is the tallest in the state. Depending on how one measures its length, it’s also among the longest, at more than 850 feet.
