Closed in March 2017 after decades of wear and damage from three hurricanes, the Oak Island Pier has been rebuilt and is set to reopen to the public next week, town officials said.

Initially, the pier will be 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 town plans to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony and soft opening of the pier on Wednesday, May 15, at 10 a.m. Kelly said he expected the tackle shop to open by Memorial Day weekend.

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. There’s still a wide wooden timber at the top for visitors to secure their bait, blades and beverages.

Kelly said the last of the pilings for the king fishing “T” would be finished this week. Workers are also adding emergency escape ladders on the east and west sides of the structure.

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.

Restauranteur Austin Alphonso, whose family operates the island’s Kai Joe’s taco stand and Southport’s Café Koa, said he expected to be serving by the end of May. His family will run a full-service waterfront restaurant with all ABC permits, plus a smaller, casual coffee shop with wi-fi and ice cream.

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.

The restaurant will be leased by "KoKo Cabana"
 owned by Alexis Oxendine owner of kai-Joe's
