Bonner Bridge Pier to close during multi-day parking lot paving project

The Bonner Bridge Pier and its access road will temporarily close during a North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) project to pave the parking lot used to access the pier and beach at the south end of Oregon Inlet. The closure is currently scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Monday, October 24 and last until Thursday, October 27.

Closure of the pier will allow up to 15 trucks to safely navigate the project area and provide an opportunity for divers to perform an underwater assessment for NCDOT’s bridge inspection report.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore, in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and NCDOT, opened the Bonner Bridge Pier to the public on Oct. 1, 2021. The pier is the 1,046-foot-long remaining section of the former Bonner Bridge.
